Cab passengers 'refused' short city rides home at night

23 December 2013 Last updated at 09:20 GMT

Cab passengers in Birmingham are being urged to report Hackney carriage drivers who refuse to take their fare at night.

The city council call follows claims that some drivers are refusing to pick up passengers that only want to travel a short distance.

One passenger claims she was left feeling " vulnerable and angry" after a cabbie refused to take her on the short journey from Birmingham's Broad Street to her Five Ways home.

Mohammed Taj, of Birmingham Black Cab Drivers' Association, said he believes "out of town" drivers are responsible.
