A protest could led to congestion on the M6

A group of Brexiteers have said they will hold a go-slow on the M6 and M54 during this evening's rush hour.

The protestors, who want a no deal Brexit, say they plan to drive at 40mph. The move could cause rush hour chaos.

It is part of a national protest by Brexit supporters who want to clog up major roads and ferry ports across the UK.

The move has been organised by the Brexit Protest and Direct Action Group whose Facebook page has almost 25,000 members just three weeks after it was set up.

It says its members taking part in the rolling road block are meeting at the Dobbies services on the A5 Shrewsbury bypass at 5pm for the 40mph journey south on the A5 and on to the M54.

A group will travel along the A5 to Telford services on M54. Then another group is expected to take ove from Telford services to Junction 1 on M54.

Another group will be starting at Junction 10 on the M6 at 6pm.

The 'Great Brexit - Remainer's Bus Hunt' plans to have drivers on the M54 at Telford to the M6 Birmingham.
