Tear gas has been fired in Lima, Peru, as police clashed with lorry drivers protesting at road toll charges going up.

Residents of northern Lima were also demonstrating – against the installation of toll booths on a stretch of road, meaning they have to pay to come and go from their own neighbourhood.

As tempers flared on Thursday, with tyres burned and rocks thrown, arrests were made along the North Panamerican highway.
