A taxi driver was hit on the head and ordered to hand over money in a robbery last week.

The victim had picked up the fare at Huntingdon Railway Station at about 7.30pm on Wednesday (March 12), before taking him to Grafham.

He also hit him around the driver on the head. The taxi driver suffered minor injuries.

Detective constable Liz Cooper said: “This was a nasty incident and we are keen to trace the man responsible.
