Council urges public to be vigilant and only use licensed taxis after the private hire plate was sto


East Northamptonshire Council has issued a warning to residents in the District after the private hire vehicle plate ‘PHV/3’ was stolen from a vehicle. All taxis that are registered with the local council must display a licence plate, which in East Northamptonshire must be displayed on the rear of the vehicle and has a unique number. There is a concern that the stolen plate could be fitted to other vehicles that may be used to commit a crime.

Steven North, Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, said: “The theft has been reported to the police and the plate numbers have been decommissioned, but sadly a stolen licence plate can have an impact on the wider community and those using taxis should be extra vigilant.

“Wherever possible, pre-book a taxi and ask the driver for the name of the booking before you get in. A top tip is to always keep the number of a reliable firm with you so you don’t get caught out.”
