The cab­bie was hailed for a latenight jour­ney from Brighton train sta­tion to Lon­don by three men who agreed on a fee. He dropped the first man off 50 miles later. At the next stop, the sec­ond man got out, thanked him and gave the des­ti­na­tion of their friend in the back seat who was asleep. But at the fi­nal ad­dress the driver tried to wake up the pas­sen­ger only to find it was a fully-clothed tai­lors dummy. Andy Cheesman, Ci­tyCabs boss in Brighton, said: ‘‘He was ex­pect­ing the last pas­sen­ger to pay, so he lost the lot. It is the fun­ni­est thing ever to hap­pen to one of our driv­ers...’’
