Liverpool City Council officers were last night studying a ruling from an industrial tribunal which found three taxi testers were unfairly dismissed.

The Daily Post (p7) reports that fitters Keith Hands, Less Tollett and Dominic Campbell were suspended from a vehicle testing station two years ago after anonymous allegations that backhanders were paid for test certificates.

It was later accepted there was no evidence of fraud. But the men lost their jobs when it was considered they had not carried out their duties properly.

At their hearing the three men said they had followed the same procedure for years. The tribunal panel concluded the council was aware of the unwritten procedures and their manager had acted unreasonably.
