Tottenham Court Road black cab protests cause chaos
Black cab drivers have blocked Tottenham Court Road in protest over plans to restrict daytime access to the route.
Car, lorries and taxis are to be banned from the landmark central London street as part of a £35 million project.
On Monday 21st January, taxis parked along the road as drivers began a week-long demonstration called by the Independent Taxi Alliance (ITA) against the proposals. Black cabs are set to protest from 4pm every day this week.
It came as minicab drivers staged a protest on Blackfriars Road against changes to the congestion charge in London.
