Leeds taxi driver was ‘over the drink drive limit’

Have your say

A taxi driver in Leeds has been arrested on suspicion of being over the drink-drive limit.

Police were called at 1.05am yesterday morning (Feb 4) to reports of a taxi driver being over the limit in the Wortley area of Leeds.

The taxi was stopped a few minutes later, at 1.19am, on Green Hill Road, Bramley, and the driver, a 42-year-old local man, was arrested.

A police spokesman said yesterday the driver had been reported for summons to appear at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on February 14 in relation to the drink-drive offence.

A Leeds City Council spokesman last night confirmed to the Yorkshire Evening Post his licence would be suspended with immediate effect in the interests of public safety.
