Manchester Council has approved 292 taxi licences for convicted criminals since 2007, including rapists, sex offenders and paedophiles. The figures were uncovered by a freedom of information act request lodged by the Manchester Evening News. The Council insist that they take offences “incredibly seriously”, but the local MP said the figures were “alarming”.
