Eight taxi drivers in the Royal Borough have their licences revoked

Eight taxi drivers in the Royal Borough have their licences revoked

Eight taxi drivers have had their licences revoked in the past eight weeks.

The Royal Borough has taken action for reasons including drink-driving and criminal activity.

Licensing team leader Alan Barwise said the number of reviews was ‘much higher than average’, but said the team is dealing with a backlog after a member of staff left.

He said both hackney carriage and minicab licences had been revoked.

At a cabinet meeting on Thursday, July 30, councillors discussed a proposal to include child sexual exploitation in the licensing agreement.

Two taxi licences have been revoked this year in order to ‘protect children from harm’.
