TAXI drivers angry at being forced to have “big brother” cameras in their cars that record footage and conversations were due to stage a demo today.

The drivers are set to circle the Civic Centre in Southampton at about 11am for half an hour.

The action comes after the city council vowed to appeal a court ruling in favour of taxi boss Keith May.

A district judge agreed that the CCTV, a compulsory licensing requirement, breaches the human right to privacy.

Trade union Unite’s cab section today backed the cabbies but condemned the council’s decision to appeal.
