Motorcyclists have been taking part in a go-slow along motorways in the West Midlands region in protest at a raft of proposed EU laws governing bikers.

The Motorcycle Action Group claim the laws would require them to submit to more regulations than other road users.

Protestors rode at about 45mph for up to 20 miles along the M40, M6, M54 and M5 causing some tailbacks.

The West Midlands action on Sunday coincided with protest rides at 66 other locations across England.
