Cab Firm Investigate Homophobic Incident

London's biggest minicab firm Addison Lee has suspended a driver over reports he threw a gay couple out because they were holding hands.

The men had been picked up from G.A.Y in Soho.

The driver is also accused of calling the couple "dirty".

An Addison Lee spokesperson said, “We are aware of an incident involving an Addison Lee vehicle in London. This incident is being investigated thoroughly,
and the driver has been suspended from duty while the investigation takes place. We are also in contact with the customer to understand more about what happened.

Addison Lee does not tolerate any form of discrimination. We pride ourselves in delivering the highest possible level of professional service, and we take matters like this very seriously."
