VIDEO: Taxi drivers protest in Maidenhead



Taxi drivers demonstrated in Maidenhead today over Royal Borough plans to change a licensing policy.

Hackney Carriage drivers were protesting because the council is considering de-restricting the number of hackney carriage licenses in the borough.

The drivers say this would mean more competition for space and custom.

Private hire drivers have submitted a petition to the council asking for the de-restriction as they feel anyone should be able to obtain a hackney plate.

The demonstration, which was heavily policed, started at 8am and caused some delays on the roads around the town centre.
