Police Hire Security Staff For Taxi Ranks

For the first time in Devon, police are hiring 'taxi marshalls' to help tackle the late night chaos around Exeter's city centre taxi ranks.

The marshals manage taxi queues, stop queue-jumping, and prevent fights kicking off.
And they've been welcomed by both taxi drivers and members of the public as a calming  and organising influence in the city centre.
They're  operating in Fore Street and Sidwell Street taxi ranks each Saturday evening between midnight and 4am.

The scheme, which began at the beginning of March has already seen over 2700 people pass safely through the taxi ranks.
 £7000 funding for its introduction was granted from the Baroness Newlove Alcohol Fund, money that supports community initiatives which aim to tackle drinking issues.
