Fake Taxi triggers police warning to only use Hackney Carriage or Prebooked vehicles

Police in Baildon have issued a warning via Twitter advising the public to only use hackney carriage Taxis or prebooked private hire vehicles after they pulled over a Mercedes Vito "Fake Taxi" which had five paying passengers in. Traffic officers stopped the silver Vito, a model used by both taxis and private hire drivers, at around 11:50pm on Saturday 22. The five passengers had no idea that the driver and vehicle were operating illegally. They were informed of their situation and it was explained to them that because it was not a legitimate taxi or private hire, the journey would have no insurance cover if something were to happen.
