An honest taxi driver has made a friend for life after returning a passenger’s bag containing £10,000.
Car dealer Adrian Quinn said cabbie Mohammed Nisar saved his business when he held onto the large amount of cash for him.
The 46-year-old was running late for one of his regular business trips to British Car Auctions, in Walsall, from his home in Hereford because a train had been cancelled.
He was an hour behind schedule when he arrived at Walsall station and did not have time to make his usual trip to the bank before the auction to deposit the money – so took it with him in a rucksack.
Mr Quinn realised he had left the bag in the car just seconds after 55-year-old Mr Nisar dropped him off.
He said: “I was walking across the car park when I realised I hadn’t got my bag and I panicked. I tried to flag down another taxi, but they all had fares. I was sick. My body just went into shut-down and I didn’t know what to do. I was just in a daze.”
