Updated: Jan 25

Two successful prosecutions by Metropolitan Police Service Roads & Transport Unit against illegal touting by unlicensed minicabs has put the spotlight on the ongoing issue the capital faces.

Using social media to highlight both cases, @MPSRTPC confirmed the successful prosecution of Adeniyi Titilayo, who was caught touting plain clothes officers in London's Charing Cross in December 2019.

Titilayo attended Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday 23 January, where he was disqualified for two years and ordered to pay a total of £557 in fines and court costs.

A second man, Tom Sebunya of Newham, who had a warrant out for his arrest after failing to show up for a court date has now been found and successfully prosecuted at City of London Magistrates Court.

Sebunya illegally touted two plain clothes officers in London's Covent Garden in November 2019.

He has been disqualified for 18 months and ordered to pay a total of £612 in fines and court costs.
