Cuba flag taxi to go to museum

A London cab painted in the colours of the Cuban flag is to be handed over to a motor museum in Havana - a place its owner has described as its "spiritual home".

Tony Caccavone, 70, said that waving goodbye to his taxi - painted in Cuban colours to show solidarity with the country in the face of US sanctions - will be "like losing part of my family" and said he already feels "naked" without it.

The London cabbie, who was born in Camden, but now lives in Enfield, bought and painted the vehicle in 1997, after Canadian tourists recommended Cuba to him as a place to visit.
