The DVSA found a defective taxi in Cardiff with a hole the size of a fist during an enforcement operation.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) who work to protect the public from unsafe drivers and vehicles discovered the problem in the lead up to Christmas.
Upon inspecting the hackney licensed vehicle, “a fist sized hole” was found in the body of the structure stuffed with newspaper in an attempted to disguise the defect.
The DVSA Enforcement team also raised concerns over the MOT testing centre as the newspaper used to fill the hole was dated two days BEFORE the vehicle's last MOT corrosion failure.
