HAVE you ever tried to pre-book a wheelchair accessible taxi in Warrington?

What a nightmare.

I must have tried every taxi company in Warrington to book a taxi for Friday night to get my uncle to the rugby.

I thought we were now in an era of equality and disability was no longer an issue – how wrong I was.

Direct taxis refuse to pre-book accessible taxis for the disabled, yet you can pre-book a normal taxi.

Some companies said ring on the day. Some companies said they could get him there but couldn’t guarantee a return.

How on earth is this fair and equal?
