Liverpool’s licensing team had a busy night suspending multiple private hire vehicles during a city centre enforcement exercise.

Three offences where shared by Liverpool City Council’s (LCC) Licensing team ranging from a horrific illegal tyre to damage caused by a road traffic accident.

One minicab vehicle licensed in Bolton was spotted in Seal Street close to midnight. During checks officers found one tyre to be illegal. In photos shared by the enforcement officers it shows the tyre worn down to its exposed cords.

The vehicle was immediately suspended from working.

A second driver was reported for displaying vehicle licensing plates in the rear window of the vehicle, instead of being firmly attached to the minicab.

The driver was reported to LCC’s neighbouring authority, Sefton Council, where it is licensed.

During the enforcement exercise officers also checked taxis and private hire vehicles on Ranelagh Street to ensure that they were correctly licensed and keeping taxi ranks clear of unauthorised vehicles.

On the same street, officers also suspended a private hire vehicle after being involved in a road traffic collision.

The Audi minicab was seen to have damage to its front driver’s side wing and bumper.
