London 2012: Cabbies Games lane protest

London taxis brought traffic to a halt at Hyde Park Corner in a protest over Olympic traffic lanes.

The protest was moved forward by three hours after police said they could not demonstrate on the Olympic Route Network from 16:00 to 03:00 BST.

Cabbies have held two protests over not being allowed into the lanes which are reserved for officials and athletes.

The area in central London became "stationary" and has caused congestion, BBC London Travel reported.
