TV report prompts CCTV donation to Bedford taxi drivers

A Northampton businessman has donated 90 in-car CCTV cameras after a spate of assaults against taxi drivers in Bedford.

Matt Stockdale made the donation after watching a report on BBC Look East about attacks on taxi staff.

Bedford has around 800 cab drivers licensed by the council and the cameras will be given to those deemed most at risk, such as drivers working at night.
