Taxi strike: Windsor demonstration ends

Taxi drivers staged a demonstration today against a proposed change in the council's licensing policy.

About 50 Hackney carriage licence holders drove slowly around Windsor town centre, repeating a protest they held in Maidenhead on Tuesday.

They were acting against the possibility that the Royal Borough could remove the limit on the number of Hackney carriage licences it issues.

Drivers fear they would face more competition for customers.

The demonstration began at 8.30am and lasted two hours.

Waheed Azam, Hackney carriage representative from the Royal Borough Taxi Association, said: "It went quite well."
