LONG tailbacks were reported in West Yorkshire when lorry drivers staged an impromptu protest on the M62 near Bradford.
The protest was one of several across the country yesterday over soaring fuel costs.
West Yorkshire Police said only two trucks and a car appeared to be involved in the go-slow demo.
It was on the eastbound carriageway between junctions 26 at Cleckheaton and 27 at Gildersome, one of the UK’s busiest stretches of motorway.
But the vehicles used all three lanes of the road between 11am and about 11.30am. Tailbacks were reported stretching west to beyond Huddersfield.
The protests were organised by transport bosses.
More than 300 lorries arrived in central London. Drivers said they were looking to the Government to cut fuel duty by 20p to 25p a litre for hauliers.
