Concerns over Sheffield CCTV taxi plan

Taxi drivers in Sheffield have met council officials to express their concern over plans to make fitting CCTV cameras in their vehicles compulsory.

The council said cameras in cars would help reduce abuse and violent attacks.

The drivers would have to pay for the cameras themselves and many told BBC Look North they could not afford them.

A decision will be made by councillors early next year.
