The Met has sought to reassure cabbies in St John’s Wood and Lisson Grove by saying it is taking “covert and non-covert” action against a gang in Lisson Grove targeting taxi drivers.

Images have circulated on social media in the last few weeks of young men allegedly part of the gangs that target drivers,

Transport for London has also reminded drivers that they can turn down fares if they feel unsafe.

Chris Johnson still needs to raise £3500 through his crowdfunding efforts for his employment claim against My Taxi.

If the target of £15,000 is not met within the next 7 days then the case will be unable to go ahead.

A preliminary court date has been set for the 8th January 2019.

Chris needs to raise a total of £18,000 by the end of December for this case to proceed, Chris said if the target is not reached there will not be the money to pay the barristers to represent him at the employment tribunal.
