Have your say
Late to the table with my comment...
Happy to read that no lives were lost.
Total grateful acknowledgement to those responders first at the scene.
Think it's about time taxi drivers were restricted on driving hours like bus and lorry drivers. The operators should lower the radio rent so drivers don't have to work extremly long hours to make a living.
And NO im not blaming the taxi driver just making a point
