Illegal Nottingham taxi drivers prosecuted

Seven private hire taxi drivers in Nottingham have been prosecuted for illegal pick ups.

They were caught during the past two months for illegally plying for hire and driving without correct insurance.

Drivers were fined, issued with penalty points and one was disqualified from driving for four months.

The city council said only licensed hackney carriages could pick up fares without pre-booking.
