After the recent assault of a cab driver outside Embargos nightclub in Chelsea the LCDC contacted David Brown of the (STC) Territorial Policing Unit. Grant Davis emphasised to the STC that it was unacceptable for cab drivers to be subject to these kinds of attacks whilst carrying out their duties as licensed taxi drivers. Below is a response from Inspector David Brown Met Police.
On receipt of this information regarding Embargos officers from the Cab Enforcement Unit STC deployed to the venue- the clipboard operator was arrested over the weekend.
We will continue to deploy to the venue.
In order for us to deploy to such venues as quickly as possible can you ask that you remind your members to contact the police regarding such incidents or if they choose not to, then to please contact us yourselves so this information can get passed on.
Insp. David Brown
