Fairfuel protest at Westminster

Campaigners from across the Anglia region have travelled to London to call on the Government to scrap a planned rise in fuel duty. They say high petrol and diesel prices are damaging the economy, especially in rural areas.

On 21 March, the Chancellor George Osbourne will deliver his budget to Parliament and that's why campaigners have come to Westminster to try to get their voices heard. Their message to the Chancellor is that he should postpone or even cancel a planned 3p rise in fuel duty set to come in in August. They say fuel prices are simply too high, they're crippling the economy - they're also stopping motorists from using their cars. Earlier a petition was presented to Downing street by the Harlow MP Robert Halfon.
