Taxi driver robbed by passenger near Carlisle

A taxi driver was robbed by a passenger in the early hours of this morning near Carlisle, say police.

The 39-year-old, from the city, was told to pull over near Orton Grange and then threatened with an "unknown metal implement".

He handed over £350 to the robber, who fled towards Cranstons Food Hall.

The incident occurred around 2.15am today.

The robber is described as white and wearing a dark hoody, with a white badge on the chest. The hood was pulled up. He was also wearing light jeans.

He was said to be in his mid-thirties, gaunt-looking and of skinny build. He was between 5ft 8in and 5ft 10in tall and spoke with a strong Scottish accent.

Anyone who recognises the description of the robber or who saw the incident should speak to DC Cathy Harrison on 101.
