Go-slow fuel protest halts traffic
A go-slow protest against rising fuel costs has been staged.
Around 20 lorries and trucks took to the roads in Salford at 6.45am and headed towards Manchester city centre.
The procession, headed by a shire horse and cart, added to the tailbacks already being experienced by motorists on the gridlocked A6 in Salford, which is undergoing roadworks.
The protest was organised by Tony Cauchi, owner of Salford Skip Hire.
It left Salford Skip Hire in Cobden Street and travelled along Broughton Road, Broad Street, The Crescent, Chapel Street, Victoria Street and Trinity Way, before the convoy returned to Salford.
