Rotherham Taxi Drivers Licences Revoked

Five Rotherham taxi drivers have had their licenses revoked in relation to investigations into child sexual exploitation, it has been revealed.

Commissioner Mary Ney said that of the seven licenses that have recently been revoked by the council, ‘five of these arose due to information from the police concerning investigations related to child sexual exploitation’.

A further 20 drivers have been refused license renewals since commissioners arrived at the authority in February.   It follows the role of taxi drivers in the grooming scandal being highlighted in the recent Alexis Jay and Louise Casey reports.    In a report made ahead to a public meeting last week, Commissioner Ney said just five of the 25 applications for taxi driver licence renewals have been accepted.
