London issues illegitimate taxi warning

Transport for London and the local police will be running a traveller operation with the reminder that if a minicab is not booked, it's not safe.

Volunteers will be stationed throughout Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road to help travellers safely navigate taxis (black cab), booked minicabs and central London Tube stations.

During the festive season, travellers are warned to be on high alert for unbooked minicabs and other illegal activity targeting priority locations across the capital.
