Speaking to BBC Essex, he said: “I was actually due to be a pallbearer on my father’s coffin along with my son, and we both got that taken away from us.

"There was a sense of ‘how dare they?’

“How dare they have the lack of forethought to say, ‘I’ll tell you what we are going to do, we are going to block these roads and be damned everybody else."
