A private hire driver, icensed by Knowsley Council, has been reported for a number of offences after Merseyside Roads and Policing Unit stopped the vehicle to undergo checks.

The driver was found to be driving a vehicle which had an expired private hire vehicle licence, as well as several defective obligatory lamps.

The vehicle also had damage to its front bumper, which was caused by a road traffic collision.

The car was also without identifiable door signs, which all private hire vehicles must have when licensed within the area.

Merseyside Roads and Policing Unit highlighted the offences on their official Twitter account, saying: "Knowsley private hire taxi stopped and reported for various offences such as having several defective obligatory lamps, no identifiable door signs, expired taxi plate and RTC damage to front bumper."

The driver will now likely face Knowsley's Licensing Committee, to see whether they can still be considered a fit-and-proper person to hold a private hire licence.
