Campaigners who are trying to convince the government to reduce fuel duty will be at Westminster this lunchtime as part of National Fair Fuel Day. Among them is the MP for Harlow Robert Halfon, who's calling on the Chancellor not to impose any fuel tax increase in the Budget.

Thousands of people are expected to take part in the mass lobby this afternoon. Fair Fuel UK wants the politicians to meet those most affected by the high costs of petrol and diesel.
