The Gallery | The driverless cars about to hit UK roads

Ministers this morning witnessed the start of official driverless vehicle trials on UK roads.

Business secretary Vince Cable and transport minister Claire Perry were in Greenwich to see the fully autonomous Meridian shuttle put through its paces.

This is one of four zones in England where trials will be carried out on public roads following a government review of the emerging technology.

In Bristol, a BAE Wildcat vehicle will be tested; while other cars will be put through their paces in Coventry and Milton Keynes.
