Dya know what, i saw a taxi driver down the dips earlier who was acting a bit dodgy. I was down there for a couple of hours hitting golf balls with a couple of wedges practicing my short game and saw a taxi driver pull up by the side of the dips and just sat there for about 20 minutes then as i was packing away and heading home via the pathway under the railway bridge to Sea Road he got out of his car and walked up the path to under the bridge by the barriers and then went to the right into the bushes, i thought he was suicidal and was looking for a way onto the railway tracks so was preparing to make a call to 999 amd have a chat with him but instead he rummaged in the bushes and pulled out a fairly clean looking carrier bag with what looked like a brown jiffy bag in it, stashed it in his coat and went back toward the dips and presumably to his car.

Now i'm not going to categorically say that he was picking up drugs, but i don't think it could have been anything else... Other than money perhaps???

Would druggies and their providers be that trusting I wonder ? I imagined it would always be a one to one face to face livetime 'swop' so one half couldnt deceive the other half of the deal. . Does sound intriguing though.

Your honour,

I had a hard day and was just taking a break in my car when a train went past and I saw something thrown from a window. I thought it strange as it didn't appear to be a bit of rubbish. I thought I would keep an eye on things and see what happens. After a short while this dodgy looking guy came into the vicinity and was pretending to play golf (from his standard of play you could tell he wasn't a golfer),

I could tell this golfer was trying to get nearer but he seemed a bit wary of me so I thought I would help things along by picking up the package for him and handing it over. My thoughts were that if it was innocent he would graciously thank me, if it wasn't so innocent either he would do a runner or come and try and knock me out. There was a chance his wife or someone had accidentally taken something on the train he needed such as his car keys.

I picked up the bag and to my surprise the golfer didn't seem particularly concerned one way or the other, I though I would look stupid if I walked up to him now. So I thought I had better take the package to the police station, on the way there I remembered I hadn't eaten so I popped into Greggs for six sausage rolls. When I got back to my car the package had gone, I bet that dodgy golfer followed me and snatched it while my back was turned. I thought it would be silly going to the police station now so I just went home to share my sausage rolls with my pet skunk.

The next morning there was a knock on the door, it was the police and that is how I come to be here now.

At the bus stop and one of the barstewards from Delta drove through a puddle in the gutter, a big one, and got me. Got a load of abuse when I thanked him. He was going to the eateries across the road. Aggressive little git he was, good job I'm a KOS.

Report him to the Council. Had one the other day parked on double yellows outside a school causing absolute chaos in an already dangerous situation, unfortunately I forgot his number by the time I got back home.

Read about this on a social network, it apparently happened in Liverpool, driver asking passenger for directions, the driver was Asian and told the passenger he had only arrived in the country a month ago and was driving in place of his brother who had gone home to see his family, maybe made up I don't know it was one of a number of instances that people were complaining about, driver's not knowing the route or not matching the photo on their ID badge.

Since May, Merseyside Police have arrested 100 taxi drivers for drug and/or drink driving. This is way out of control. There are numerous other offences such as bald tyres, private hire responding to hails etc etc. Needs a very strict clampdown by the licensing authorities.

Some of the driving really is poor, Liscard is like taxi land,nearly every double yellow has a taxi parked on them, the taxi stand near the traffic lights by the Clareville Pub is like wacky races when the lights change they cut right out in front of you, u turns, lane changes, fortunately we have always had decent drivers and most I've met are decent lads just earning a living, but recently there seems to be an element coming into the industry that are bringing it into disrepute, and they need sifting out.
