A GO-SLOW of up to 40 taxis will bring the town centre to a standstill tomorrow morning, in protest to changes to the Strand taxi rank.

The protest, organised by taxi driver Steve Glover, follows the unveiling of plans in by Devon County Council to refurbish the Strand.

Taxi Driver Brian May said: "We have seen the plans for the Strand, and they haven't left enough room.

"There are more than 80 taxis in Exmouth, and the plans leave room for just six.
