Taxi driver conned out of cash in Hope Valley

Taxi companies are being urged to be vigilant after a driver was conned out of money in the Hope Valley.

A driver was asked to collect computer software from an address in Birmingham but as he was travelling he was contacted and asked to pay for the goods himself in cash, which he was told he would be reimbursed with.

There was no one to refund the cash at the end of the journey.
