A taxi driver has appeared at Cardiff magistrates court accused of crashing into eight pedestrians. 28-year-old Majid Rehman is charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent, and seven counts of attempting to inflict grievous bodily harm.

The court heard he had earlier been parked in a taxi in a queue at Cardiff train station waiting to collect passengers.

Prosecutor David Cook said "Six of the men were leaving the train station where they had been working for Network Rail."

Rehman was remanded in custody and will appear at Cardiff Crown Court next month. Seven of the men have been released from hospital and another man is being treated for burns.
