Fuel price protestors will slow traffic to a crawl with rolling roadblocks on M4, M5, M3 and A38 Friday

The protests could cause disruption to the millions of families embarking on getaways at the start of summer holidays for many schools in England and Wales, with many potentially arriving hours late at their hotels or holiday flats

Fuel price protesters will cause disruption on major roads that are all key parts of the holiday ‘network’ in south-west England tomorrow, coinciding with the start of the ‘summer getaway’ season as most schools close today.

Avon and Somerset Police warned motorists that ‘slow-moving roadblocks’ are planned on parts of the M4, M5, M32 and A38 as activists demonstrate against the rising cost of fuel.

An image posted on the Facebook group Fuel Price Stand Against Tax suggests demonstrations will be held ‘nationwide’, including in Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, London and Manchester.

This could cause disruption to the millions of families embarking on getaways at the start of summer holidays for many schools in England and Wales, with many potentially arriving hours late at their hotels or holiday flats.
