There is too much hate and abuse directed at taxi and private hire drivers in the West Midlands says Victims' Commissioner Nicky Brennan and Asst PCC Tom McNeil.

Both Brennan and McNeil wrote to firms last year to highlight hate crime support and restorative justice services on offer in the region to help victims get closure.

The hate crime support service was launched last year and is also run by Remedi. It's available to all victims of hate crime regardless of whether they report the crime to the police.

Brennan and McNeil have once again highlighted the ongoing issues surrounding the safety and protection of taxi and private hire drivers, saying that offenders should be brought to justice and made to apologise to their victims. This is also believed to help victims of abuse reach closure and help them move on with their lives.

West Midlands Police and Crime Commission has added that it always encourages victims to report hate crimes to West Midlands Police to bring offenders to justice.
