Farmers and lorry drivers are set to take part in protests across the UK against the rising cost of fuel.

The day of action comes after fuel prices on garage forecourts rose above the £1 per litre mark in recent weeks.

A Road Haulage Association convoy of about 30 vehicles is also due to create a rolling blockade on major roads in Scotland from 1000 GMT on Saturday.

The government has warned unlawful blockades should not be tolerated.

Police plan to monitor the situation.

~3.78 litre = 1 US gallon
(£1/litre * 3.78 litres) * 2.0174 = ~$7.63/gallon in US Dollars
