Gatwick Police are cracking down on unlicensed, uninsured and unroadworthy taxis.

Sergeant Darren Taylor said officers seized a number of taxis travelling to the airport this morning (Wednesday October 14).

He tweeted: “@GatwickPolice joint working with external agencies around taxis travelling to Gatwick.

“You would not drive an unlicensed, uninsured and unroadworthy vehicle so why would you get in a taxi like this?

“Taxi operation in full flow now. Already a number of drivers stopped and offences being uncovered.

“One driver’s licence revoked due to vehicle being non-compliant.”

He added: “Another vehicle seized and taken off the road...this time for no insurance”
