A female London taxi passenger has issued a plea to find her ‘Knight of the Road’ after kicking herself for not giving her number to a London cabbie she made an instant connection with.
Kim Brown made a public plea to over 18,000 people on the popular ‘Save our Black Taxis’ Facebook Group to find the cabbie known only as ‘George’. Since her message was posted on 6 December there has been an industry wide search for the ‘stocky’, blue eyed cab driver from the King Cross area.
George is also described as around 5ft 9in, wearing a grey coat and had one sister. The cabbie was driving a taxi with sliding doors, meaning the vehicle was either a Mercedes Vito or an electric Nissan Dynamo.
Kim hailed the taxi from The Palace Hotel on Buckingham Gate and travelled with ‘George’ to Kings Cross Station.
In the message to the group Kim wrote:
'I’m wondering if you guys can help me and maybe a bit of a long shot, but I could kick myself for not giving this cabbie my number-
I’m the geordie girl spilling her life story to you from The Palace (Buckingham Gate) to Kings Cross 06/12 at approx 3pm. We chatted about chances & one for the road- I should have taken a chance on you then.
I’d love to continue our chat.
Since the post was logged, there have been hundreds of comments and posts asking more about George and whether Kim has found her Knight in shining black armour.
Can George be found in time for Christmas?
