A taxi driver has been robbed of a large amount of cash after he was threatened with a knife at around 1.30pm on Tuesday 28 July.
His silver Skoda Octavia taxi was parked in a lay-by opposite the entrance to the Viewley Centre, on Hemlington Hall Road in Hemlington, Middlesbrough, when a man approached the driver and threatened him with a knife whilst demanding cash.
