Taxi drivers brought parts of London, Paris and other European cities to a standstill on June 11 as they protested against new private cab apps such as Uber which have shaken up the industry. Thousands of London's iconic black cabs, many of them beeping their horns, filled the roads around Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament to the exclusion of any other vehicles.
