London taxi drivers have brought forward a protest over a ban on using Olympic traffic lanes after police imposed restrictions on the demonstration.

The drivers were due to start their protest at Hyde Park Corner at 5pm, just a few hours before the official opening of the Games, but it will now be held at 2pm.
