Illegal taxi tout at Luton Airport gets six month driving ban

A man who ran an illegal taxi business at Luton Airport has been banned from driving for six months.

Yasir Masood, 40, of Brook Street, Luton, pleaded guilty at Luton Magistrates’ Court last week to touting for hire by a private hire vehicle.

He was disqualified from driving for six months and fined £150.

PC Tom Hamilton, from the force’s community policing team at the airport, said: “We are aware that illegal touts have been causing a number of issues at the airport, and it will not be tolerated.

“This kind of behaviour is also unfair on legitimate taxi drivers, who have gone through the proper processes of getting a licence.

“This six month ban and fine should show that this behaviour will be taken seriously by the courts. As air travel begins to pick back up again, we would also encourage people to use licensed taxi.”

Completely out of order or out of context, it should have read had "use Licenced taxis or pre booked private hire vehicles"

Luton airport always promotes the use of their contractor which is Addison Lee so no they never mention PH in announcements or signage around the airport.

But the post implies it was PC Tom Hamilton that said it, and even if it was not him they were wrong to say "We would also encourage people to use Licensed Taxi" as it also implies that PH use is not endorsed even they they themselves have a PH contractor at the airport.
