Sand and tires are dumped during on highway by angry scrap iron workers

Scrap iron workers have again staged an early morning protest causing disruption to traffic in parts of Claxton Bay.

From as early as 4am this morning, the angry workers blocked the northbound lane of the Solomon Hochoy Highway.

The workers are protesting the 6-month ban on exports implemented by the government.

Police and fire fighters were called to the scene this morning.

Speaking with Newscenter 5 this morning National Security Mininster Fitzgerald Hinds said so far law enforcement officers have been able to have one lane passable to the motoring public.

He said the protest appeared to be better organised this time.

The workers believe the ban will destroy the sector.
