Taxi driver watches film while working in Worcester

A taxi driver has been caught watching a film on his phone while ferrying passengers.

Two people in the back of the cab filmed 45-year-old Tanvir Ahmad Lone as he drove them through Worcester city centre in the early hours of Saturday.

Mr Lone, who has been a taxi driver for 15 years, said he left it playing on the dashboard by accident and it would never happen again.

"In my defence I have to say this, I would never do this and it was just an unfortunate coincidence that you... [film] it and it would never happen again," he said.

Worcester City Council said it had started an investigation into what happened.
