A DUDLEY taxi driver was reportedly stabbed in his cab in the early hours of Friday April 13 after picking up a fare.

The incident happened after the driver picked up two men in White Heath.

According to Shaz Saleem, chairman of Dudley Private Hire and Taxi Association, the driver suffered two tissue wounds but “is making a good recovery”.

He added: “I think it's an absolute joke that we, the drivers, should be in a situations like this. We get this for trying to earn a living to support our families?

“I will be consulting my members and decide what we as the trade should do next.”
