London cabbies block Tottenham Court Road over planned ban on cars, lorries and taxis

Hundreds of black cab drivers have again blocked Tottenham Court Road in central London to protest plans to restrict daytime access to the route.

Video filmed this afternoon shows the major London artery clogged during early evening rush-hour.

Black cabs are protesting from 4pm every day this week, according to local media.

"You wait ages for a black cab and then 500 come along at once," said the filmer.
