London-black-cabLONDON'S world famous black cabs are set to bring the capital to a standstill with a traffic blockade.

The 25,000 drivers are planning to choke off the city in protest at their vehicles being banned from a 'VIP road network' which has been set up to provide unhindered road transport for athletes, media and international sports officials at the 2012 London Olympics.
The controversial plans, intended to beat London's notoriously congested traffic, will also hit millions of Londoners.
Richard Massett of the city's Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association, said: "There will be a huge problem getting people where they want to go and we will have to deal with the customers' frustration. We will be stuck in jams and for customers fares will soar."
