Jersey Minister 'lying' about taxi fare changes

Taxi drivers in Jersey brought St Helier traffic to a standstill this morning, as they staged a protest against proposed changes to their fares.

Around a hundred rank taxi drivers joined in to show their opposition to the raft of changes, which have been proposed by Infrastructure Minister, Deputy Eddie Noel.

Deputy Eddie Noel says amending the fare structure won't leave drivers worse off, but many in the industry disagree.
