Courts order Christmas Day bilker to pay £126 fare

Courts ordered a twenty-year-old man who bilked a taxi driver for £126 on Christmas Day to pay the fare.

Bilker Kai Bailey faced charges of making off without paying the £126 taxi fare owed during the festive period last year.

Bailey travelled in a taxi from Harrogate to Skipton.

Bailey appeared at York Magistrates' Court on 26 April and pleaded guilty to the offence.

Magistrates ordered Bailey to pay compensation equating to the value of the fare to the taxi company.

No further order for costs or surcharge was made.
