Taxi drivers lose licences after grooming scandal

Taxi drivers and takeaway food outlets have been publicly implicated as vectors in grooming for at least a decade. Unpublished reports show that this has been known for more than two decades

From: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/uk/article4714323.ece

Almost 50 Rotherham taxi drivers have been stripped of their licences under new regulations introduced after the town’s sex-grooming scandal.

Among them was the local authority’s former deputy leader, Jahangir Akhtar, who featured in a recent trial at which three of his relatives were convicted of multiple sexual offences against young girls.

Tougher policies for private-hire and taxi drivers were introduced last year after government-appointed commissioners took control of many of the disgraced council’s powers.
