Carmarthen taxi driver suspended for refusing woman with MS

A Carmarthenshire taxi driver has had his licence suspended for seven days for refusing to take a woman with multiple sclerosis on a short journey.

Barbara Stensland, 43, from Cardiff, travelled to Carmarthen on 5 August for a meeting of the MS Society.

When she tried to get a taxi from the railway station to the venue less than one mile (1.6km) away, she said driver David Maynard refused to take her.

Mr Maynard said the allegations were a "total fabrication".

Ms Stensland said she thought Mr Maynard was joking.
