WHAT do a Playstation, a coat and £1,000 cash have in common?
They’re all items which have been left in taxi driver Muhammed Naeem’s cab.
And the Bradley man pulled out all the stops to reunite the cash with its owner. He retraced his fares to find the owner of the missing £1,000.
But he’s now advising people to take all their items with them after turning Good Samaritan many times so far this year.
“I’ve had a Playstation, mobile phones, credit cards, coats and bags left in my taxi,” he said. “But I couldn’t believe it when I saw a bag with £1,000 in it.”
The cash belonged to a tourist visiting a Huddersfield family.
Muhammed had picked them up from the Odeon cinema at the weekend and took them back to a flat beyond the town centre.
“There’s a partition in my Hackney cab so when someone said there was a bag I had to re-trace where I’d been.
“They were very thankful I took it back, but I’m an honest person.
“I’d say to people, be more careful because there’s a partition and I can’t always see if something’s been left behind.”
Since Christmas he has found a games console, four handbags, two mobile phones and credit cards, all of which he has either reunited with their owners or left at the police station.
