Protesting truck drivers say they understand commuters’ frustrations this morning but say their voices must be heard.

A convoy of hauliers are arriving on Kildare Street in Dublin, to protest against rising fuel costs.

They say many smaller operators are struggling to survive and are demanding the Government act.

Sean, a truck driver from Carlow and says he understands the protest has caused major disruption but the knock on effect of continuously rising fuel prices could have even worse consequences for livelihoods.
