A blind man has told of his frustration after a taxi driver refused to allow his guide dog into the car.
Zaheer Mahmood was fined £300 after refusing to let Rex Bowers, who has no vision at all, and guide dog Isca into his taxi at a Shropshire station.
Mr Bowers, 76, said Mahmood had refused point blank to let Isca in to the car and called for the local authority to remove his taxi licence.
Shropshire Council has been contacted for comment.
A petition calling for Erewash cabbies to be allowed to have fully-tinted windows in their taxis has been rejected over fears that vehicles could be used to enable the abuse of vulnerable children and adults.
