A man from Bridport continues his unique campaign against lorries driving through his village on Tuesday.

77-year-old Tony Fuller has held four protests in Chideock already where he repeatedly presses the button on the pedestrian crossing to get the traffic to stop.

He will be out campaigning again on Tuesday from 2pm.

Dorset police are advising drivers to avoid the village, and say the protests are likely to continue over the coming weeks.

As with all protests, Dorset Police has been working with the organisers to ensure public safety.

Officers will be in attendance on Tuesday, to ensure that there are no breaches of the peace and that there is no risk to the safety of road users or pedestrians.

Safer Neighbourhood Officers are holding a PACT meeting to discuss the protests at 7pm on Friday 21 May 2010 at Chideock Village Hall.

Inspector Caroline Naughton, of Bridport Police, said: "I’d like to invite residents to attend this meeting to raise any concerns they have in relation to the recent, and up and coming, protests as well as traffic congestion in the village."
