A relatives 10 year autistic son was collected by taxi at 08.45 for school

08.55 another taxi arrives for him...

mum rings school "no, hes not here"

mum rings taxi base ..."not our problem, he has been dropped off"

mum/dad hysterics, just about to call police


yeah, dropped off at the wrong school where - due to his obvious age - the schools child protection officer asked the driver why the child was there (its a college) and refused to let the child back in the car

mum had to get a lift to the school to collect the lad

it takes weeks to get this lad calm over upsets...

That's what happens when contracts are awarded on price, rather than on service.

Happens every day throughout the country.

Upon viewing the schools CCTV it seems both cars WERE off the same base

base has had its contracts cancelled

mistakes we all make, lying to cover up is not an option

It's the lying and covering up that catches folks out, always.

yep

"To err is human, to forgive is divine"

mistakes can be forgiven, (be aware your lies will always catch you out)
