Ninety taxi drivers are losing their jobs because of a row over a phone number. Blue Line Taxis has closed its Newcastle office because it says the City Council won't allow it to use the same phone number as the one for other branches.
Blue Line says it will still operate in North Tyneside, but having different numbers is unworkable. The council says it hasn't directly put drivers out of work. Adding that drivers are self-employed so can work for any private hire company in the city.
