Cabbies take children on trip to the seaside

Adventure Island in Southend, Essex

A group of taxi drivers will be heading to Essex today to take 300 children on a trip to the seaside.

The annual outing has been arranged by London cabbies. Every year, they take children out of the capital for a special day out.

They will be heading to Southend where they will have lunch at Cliffs Pavilion. Afterwards they will visit Adventure Island and then they will be treated to tea and a disco.
