Police make 'banana man' plea to taxi driver

Police have appealed for help to trace a taxi driver who picked up a man dressed as a banana and another dressed as a clown in Stirlingshire last week.

Officers believe he may hold vital information about an allegation of a sexual assault.

The taxi driver picked up a woman and up to four men, two of them in fancy dress, at The Beat nightclub in Bridge of Allan at about 02:00 on 6 October.

A police spokeswoman said: "We are keen for him to come forward."

The taxi went to Wallace Street in Stirling.

The spokeswoman added: "We have carried out extensive inquiries in an effort to trace the taxi driver.

"We are certain that the taxi driver would remember this pick-up as two of the men were in fancy dress costumes."
