The go-slow convoys are just two of a number of demonstrations being held across the country as average petrol and diesel prices close in on £2 a litre.

On the M54 protesters in cars, vans and trucks have joined the protest around Shifnal Services at Junction 4. From there they are heading east along the motorway to Junction 1 for Cannock, before turning round and heading back towards Shropshire.

Elsewhere in the West Midlands, another convoy is expected to drive at 30mph in lanes one and two of the M6, heading north from Junction 3 before returning down the southbound carriageway.
