Trucks and buses, but not ur­ban trans­port, came to a halt over a dis­pute with the gov­ern­ment that in­sists that all ve­hi­cles in­clude tachome­ters as part of the EU har­mon­i­sa­tion and safety rules.

Driv­ers’ unions staged the work stop­page (which they did not call a “strike”) be­cause they said that the gov­ern­ment’s plans makes their ve­hi­cles il­le­gal and un­wor­thy on roads, while the Jus­tice Min­is­ter and MPs refuse to meet them.

Of­fi­cials from the Civil Avi­a­tion depart­ment told an in­quiry into the deaths of the 121 pas­sen­gers and crew of the ill-fated He­lios flight to Greece that seven in­ci­dents con­cern­ing prob­lems in the func­tion of the Boe­ing 737 had been re­ported from the time of the air­craft’s reg­is­tra­tion up to the fa­tal crash.
