A taxi driver who refused to give an elderly woman and her disabled son a hand with their shopping has been successfully prosecuted after action by Swansea city council.

The paper says the court heard that the driver claimed the bags of groceries were not luggage.

Under Swansea bylaws the driver, John Hughes, 63, was fined £200 with £20 costs for failing to give reasonable assistance and for failing to behave in a civil and orderly manner. Action was taken under the Town Police Clauses Act 1847, a spokesman for the city council's legal department is reported as saying.
