Anger flares in Greece at road haulage plans

Athens is braced for a second day of demonstrations on Wednesday, as striking truck drivers continue to protest against the Greek government's plans to reform the way they work.

On Tuesday, riot police used tear gas to disperse crowds during scuffles outside the country's parliament and some 2,000 demonstrators continued to protest through the night.

They are opposed to a plan to liberalise Greece's tightly controlled road haulage sector.

The BBC's Jack Izzard reports.
