Wiltshire motorbikes in M4 go-slow against the EU

Hundreds of motorcyclists have taken part in a go-slow protest in Wiltshire filling two lanes of the M4.

The 20-minute ride, which involved more than 250 bikes, was part of a national campaign against proposed changes to EU laws governing motorcycling.

Trowbridge biker Darren Eggleton, 39, said riding at 45mph was a "peaceful show of numbers that we are not happy".

The Motorcycle Action Group claims the EU is considering new laws such as compulsory hi-vis jackets.

The group organised 150 rallies around the UK, including two routes in Wiltshire.

One group travelled westbound along the M4 from the Leigh Delamare services near Chippenham while the other rode east along the A303 from Solstice Park in Amesbury.

Both rallies began at 13:00 BST and dispersed 30 minutes later.
