A cab driver has had his car stolen after being held at knifepoint, moments after starting his shift.

The cabbie was targeted by thieves on 10 June at approximately 5.30am in Bull Close Road, Norwich.

The driver, who is in his 50s, was getting into his vehicle, a blue Skoda Superb, when he was approached by the thieves and ordered out of his vehicle at knifepoint.

The thieves then got into the vehicle and drove off. The car was then seen heading in the direction of Norwich Airport after stopping to pick up a woman.

It was reported in the Eastern Daily Press that the driver, although badly shaken, was unhurt in the robbery.

Cash, as well as a sat-nav were stolen from the vehicle, however the driver managed to keep hold of his PDA device.
