A Sheffield cabbie insisted the show must go on when he came to the rescue of a city rocker.

When Reverend and the Makers frontman Jon McClure slept in at home in Sheffield before a gig in Preston, he issued a plea via Twitter for a lift to the venue 70 miles away.

And Mercury Taxis driver Zif Khan provided the answer to his prayers, ensuring the Rev made it in the nick of time.

Jon told fans: “There basically would be no gig tonight without Mercury Taxis. I cut it way too fine.

“Take a bow the legends. Sortin’ me out getting to Preston.”
