A taxi driver who refused to pick up an assistance dog and abandoned his passenger has had his licence revoked.
Sadly, it's only his taxi licence. Perhaps if it had been his driving licence as well, the news might spread amongst his 'community'..?
Shamal Hussein Majid told the customer the dog could go in his boot but there would be an extra £10 cleaning fee, Wolverhampton City Council said. He also claimed he was allergic but did not have exemption paperwork and left the "vulnerable" customer, who is registered blind, at the roadside.
And despite this, he still chanced his arm at appeal.
Mr Majid lost his appeal at Black Country Magistrates' Court on Friday.
Mr Majid was also ordered ordered to pay £300 towards the council's legal costs.
Both trials would have cost far more. But it's a start.
