DO you know a South Yorkshire taxi driver who goes that extra mile for customers?
It's time to hail your cabbie.

Taxi drivers in the county are in with a chance of being crowned the UK's 'Most Pukka Black Cabbie' and winning 2,500 worth of prizes.

Competition spokesman Andrew Freeman said: "We know black cab drivers in South Yorkshire take great pride in their jobs, and provide a great service for so many people.

"The UK is famous for its iconic black cabs but it's not an easy job. Cabbies need to be patient, helpful, calm and alert, often under stressful conditions.

"We want to find the most deserving cabbie, somebody making the industry and Sheffield proud."

Caring cabbie Don Pratt, aged 65, from Cornwall, who was left a 250,000 tip after his regular customer Mary Watson died, has agreed to be one of the judges, along with representatives from sponsors Turtle Wax.

The winner will receive 2,000 worth of modifications to their cab, a short city break worth 500, and a year's supply of Turtle Wax Black Box.

Two runners-up will also receive 250 worth of holiday vouchers, as well as a year's supply of wax.

Log on to www.turtlewaxblackbox.co.uk/mostpukkablackcabbie before August 23 to nominate your favourite.
