It's been revealed by the London Cab Drivers Club that Sean Stockings has had his taxi license reinstated after a long running dispute with regulators Transport for London.
Stockings licence was revoked after he approached a group of people, which included TfL senior officials Leon Daniels and Peter Blake sitting in a Mount Street restaurant. Sean then asked for some answers in relation to issues surrounding the taxi industry.
A complaint was made by one of the group to the police and upon investigation they decided that there was no case to answer.
TfL then withdrew the cabbies licence, citing, "not being a fit and proper person to hold a taxi licence" as the reason.
It was then that the LCDCs Grant Davis and their legal team which included Keima Payton swung into action.
Grant said via the LCDC Facebook page "Great news, TfL have informed me today that Sean Stockings has had his license reinstated."
He then added " A massive thank you to Keima Payton for all her excellent work this year with Sean. I hope this shows drivers that as a member of the LCDC we will always fight you corner."
It has been discussed throughout the London taxi industry as to whether Sean's licence withdrawal was done out of an act of malice by the complainant rather than for professional reasons.
Whatever the real reason pertaining to Sean's licence withdrawal, we are sure that he will just be happy to get back to work.
Congratulations to Sean and the team at the LCDC from all of us here at TaxiPoint.
