Taxi drivers have told how they are struggling to survive after coronavirus saw their trade practically disappear overnight.
One driver has said he may have to give up being a cabbie and find another job as work has been so scarce.
Drivers have told how they saw a bustling and busy town centre disappear during lockdown and along with it their income.
A lot work for drivers involved taking passengers, to hospital appointments and school runs. These all stopped as the town stuck to lockdown rules.
Airport journeys were a big part of their business for many and there was hope that these would return as lockdown eased. but the development that saw the Government say people heading off on holiday to Spain must isolate when they return to the UK has hit trade in this area again, they say.
Many are gutting it out and hoping things will pick back, but they all agree it is going to be a rough ride for the town's taxi drivers
Burton Live spoke to three taxi drivers in who work in the town and this is what they had to say.
He has been a taxi driver in Burton since 1985 and has been running his own taxi firm, Falcon Cars, since 2010.
The 53-year-old said: "Business is very quiet and has been since the lockdown was first announced, back in March.
"A lot of my customers are elderly, who are the most vulnerable so it's understandable they are shielding.
"People need to be cautious, especially with the spikes locally and it's perfectly understandable.
"Let's see what happens in the next couple of months, if things don't improve I may look into doing something else, as food still needs to be put on my table.
"This current situations has impacted us all, not just taxi drivers, so we are all in this together and I hope for all of us we can look towards some form of normality."
He owns 43 Taxis, in Worthington Way, and says drivers have gone from earning between £70 to £100 to £25 and £30 in a ten-hour shift.
The 24-year-old said: "Due to the recent cases in Burton a lot of people are staying in and avoiding going to places like shopping centres and the town centre.
"As we are so close to the town centre, seeing it with very little people is something we have never seen before.
"It's currently very tough for my drivers and I hope for them the situation improves and they can start earning how they were before.
He works for 43 Taxis, in Worthington Way, and said so far almost 80 per cent of his work has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
The 42-year-old, who is also a member of Anglesey Parish Council, said: “ We have lost a lot of business since the coronavirus news broke.
“People are staying indoors, and we are receiving very few calls for taxis.
“The drivers are really worried, being self-employed at this moment of time is very difficult and I hope the situation improves for everyone, not just taxi drivers.
