“It is vital that people don’t talk about concrete cows, roundabouts and a rapist taxi driver. It is vital we move on.”

She added that she looked forward to seeing councillors at the next cabinet meeting on December 10 to discuss changes and “make this a service we can be proud of”.

Councillors debating the internal investigation into the taxi licensing scandal tonight recognised the “reputational damage” caused to taxi drivers.
