Friday’s front page carries a warning from Huddersfield taxi driver Majid Niaz.

He says drivers are being targeted by a criminal gang after dash-cam footage captured a thief stealing £120 in takings from his taxi.

“I went to the mosque and 15 minutes later came back and they had smashed the window and stolen the takings of about £120,” Mr Niaz said.

“Other taxi drivers in Birkby have had break-ins on their cars in the last two weeks. I think there have been about five incidents.”

Watch the dash-cam footage below:
