Work Starts To Scrap M4 Bus Lane

Work will begin later to remove the M4 bus lane.

The 3 and a half mile stretch near Heathrow Airport was introduced in 1999 by the then Transport Secretary John Prescott.

But the current Transport Secretary Philip Hammond has decided it's rarely used and not always enforced.

The bus lane's suspended until the 2012 London Olympics.
