A Birmingham taxi driver has been sacked after he refused to take a guide dog in his cab.

He told owner Sue Smith there was "no room" in the vehicle for her and four-year-old Labrador Sonny, despite it being illegal to refuse travel to a blind person.

Ms Smith said the incident had made her feel wary about going out.
