Striking Spanish lorry drivers today clogged roads leading into Madrid and other cities on the second day of action over rising fuel costs.
The Interior Ministry said all major roads leading into the capital were bumper-to-bumper because of trucks moving at a snail’s pace as part of the protest.
The government is holding a second round of talks today with representatives of the strikers.
Their main demand is for minimum, guaranteed haulage rates to offset rising fuel prices.
They argue that only in this way can they compete with large trucking companies.
