Coventry's 2Tone taxi hits the streets

media captionCoventry's 2Tone Taxi - Get on board

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire is creating a special 2Tone taxi which will celebrate the city and the people in it.

The taxi will tell the story of Coventry; the special places, people or hidden gems.

Created by the listeners of BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, this will be a taxi tour like no other, designed by the people who know here, live here and love here.

Coventry is famous for the 2 Tone music of the 1970s Ska scene and manufacturing the iconic London Taxi.

Our 2Tone Taxi has now hit the streets and will do tours of the city to tell the story of Coventry - the music, the monuments and the people.

Listeners and visitors to the BBC website have been sending in their hidden gems - the characters and places you think we should be proud of and shout about.

The deadline for submitting suggestions has now passed and we thank everyone who has taken part.

Keep listening to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire as we meet the people helping us create the 2 Tone Taxi and hear your stories about the city.
