A taxi driver was dragged from his car in Drighlington and punched in the face by two passengers who then drove off in his vehicle.

Leeds Crown Court heard yesterday Jonathan Barrett was subsequently involved in a police chase ramming a couple of vehicles before the taxi eventually stopped and was found to be a write off.

Michele Stuart-Lofthouse prosecuting told the court Scott Ormsby and Barrett were among four men who got into Muhammed Akhlaq’s VW Passat taxi late on December 1 last year after he had been asked to collect passengers from the Commercial Inn pub at Morley.
