Dramatic standoff: Police shutdown fuel protest and arrest protestors. Welsh Police can be seen surrounding vehicles involved in a fuel protest on the M4 after they asked the drivers to go faster and they refused.
At least eight protesters who were carrying out a demonstration along the M4 have been arrested on suspicion of committing a public order offence. The drivers of the vehicles were told they were being arrested for driving too slow, below the 30mph or more they were told they had to drive to carry out the action legally. Dozens of police vans and police officers blocked the eastbound and westbound carriageways of the M4 just past the Prince of Wales Bridge into Wales to carry out the arrests. Those arrested were taken into custody and PA news agency understands they were transported by police van to Newport Central Police Station, South Wales. Their vehicles were seized, and those considered passengers were driven back to Magor Service Station where their convoy started from.
