Campaigners call on government to cut fuel duty

Fuel campaigners are meeting the Chancellor George Osborne to discuss the proposed rise in fuel duty.

The increase, which is due to take effect in August, has already been delayed from January.

Campaigners say the impact will be disastrous for families and small firms, and point to the recent rise in diesel costs which last week hit a new record high of 143.7p.
