Europe’s largest fishing fleet has gone on strike.
“We’re having to compete with hauliers from those other EU countries who are coming into the UK with enough fuel to last all week – they’re undercutting our rates, taking our work and destroying British companies.”
Escorted by police, the protestors on Wednesday set off from a service station in Kent and will drive in convoys from a highway west of the city, into the centre of London.
In May, several hundred truckers jammed a major route into London in a similar protest.
In addition to the mobile protest, a delegation of hauliers will lobby Parliament on foot in protest at record-high fuel prices.
High fuel prices have sparked several protests across Europe in the last few months.
