One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Luton Taxi Driver Stabbed
Police are appealing for witnesses after a taxi driver was stabbed in the early hours of this morning in Luton.
The man was parked in his cab near a cash point in Calverton Road when he was approached by two men riding push bikes just after midnight.
The men attempted to steal money from the victim before stabbing him in the back with a knife.
The man attended hospital shortly afterwards where fortunately his injuries were deemed to be non-life-threatening.
Detective Constable Benjamin Stone, investigating, said:
"This was a nasty attack on an innocent individual by two violent opportunists. I'm appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who saw two black men on bikes in the vicinity of Calverton Road either prior to or after the incident to contact us.
Knife crime will not be tolerated in our communities and we're determined to find the people responsible for this attack."
