London, July 24 (IANS) London police said a man jumped into River Thames during an Olympic protest by the city’s cab drivers.

Several dozen cabs drove slowly and tooted their horns at Tower Bridge Monday as the drivers were furious at being banned from driving in the special lanes reserved for Olympic Family members and fear they will lose money because the roads will be congested during the Games, Xinhua reports.

The “Games Lanes” around greater London are set to come into use Wednesday onwards.
