Traffic chaos in Bristol as taxi drivers protest at Temple Meads

Commuters in Bristol are being reminded about a protest by taxi drivers taking place around Bristol Temple Meads this morning.

The protests are the latest in a series of demonstrations against changes at Temple Meads station.

Taxi drivers are angry that the number of taxi bays have been cut from 46 to 30, and drivers who can't find a space are moved on.

As part of the demonstrations, drivers have been refusing to pick up passengers, causing long delays in the area surrounding the station.
