Rochdale taxi firm offers white drivers on demand after two Pakistani drivers jailed for sex-grooming of girls

A taxi company in a town tainted by a child sex-grooming gang scandal is offering customers white drivers on demand.

Rochdale minicab firm Car 2000 is offering the choice after two taxi drivers of Pakistani origin were jailed for their part in the sex trafficking and rape of young white girls in the town.

The firm, which bought out Eagle Taxis – a company at the centre of the grooming scandal, has revealed that many customers were asking for white or ‘local’ drivers, it was reported last night.

Simon Danczuk, the town’s Labour MP, branded the development ‘extremely worrying’ but the council said Car 2000 was doing nothing wrong.
