Glasgow City Council has backtracked on its decision to increase the price of annual taxi cab inspections, after cab drivers vented their anger.

The council came under fire when it was announced that charges for the mandatory vehicle reviews rose from £51.50 to £61.50.

Taxis undergo inspections twice a year to ensure health and safety of passengers who use the taxi services.

The council had originally said the increase in price was due to sanitising procedures which the testing stations had to run the cabs through beforehand.

Unite the Union Glasgow Cab Section has now confirmed to TaxiPoint that the council has definitely reversed their decision and prices will remain as they were at £51.50.
