A SECOND fuel convoy protest threatens to bring more chaos to roads in the area on Saturday.
Organisers of the successful fuel protest along the A55 on July 4 are planning a second demo which they hope will be bigger.
Friends Mark Waterworth and Gwil Ritchie from Rhyl in North Wales say more than 150 vehicles joined their last protest when they handed in an 800-name petition at Welsh Assembly highway offices in Colwyn Bay calling on the Government to take action to reduce spiralling fuel costs.
And they have met police to agree the starting point for a further demo this weekend.
Gwil Ritchie, who runs an equine recovery business, said: “We have now decided we will start somewhere on the M62 at Liverpool and then we will take the M6, the M56, the A5117 past the Stanlow oil refinery, and then the M53 and then the A55.
“We have two or three points in mind. It will start about 10am and terminate at the cattle market in St Asaph.”
The convoy will be one of several protests, with others taking place in London, Oxford, Nottingham, Derby and Manchester.
Mr Ritchie added: “We achieved what we set out to achieve, a peaceful and largely non-disruptive protest.”
He said the need for action was greater than ever. “Things are getting worse by the day .”
Both Cheshire and North Wales Police said the July 4 protest was without incident and well organised. For details email firstname.lastname@example.org. uk
