Chelmsford Taxi Driver Injured After Passenger Attack
A taxi driver has been stabbed in the arm in Chelmsford by a man who robbed him and tried to steal his car keys.

Essex Police said: "Officers were contacted with reports the victim had been injured with an unknown object by a customer in Oliver Way.
"The driver, a man aged in his 50s, was taken to hospital with an injury to his right arm.
"It is not believed to be life threatening.
