kings taxi in burnley is horrific its so sick. doesnt deserve 1 star... i had a miss carry and hemorage i was rushed to the hospital in the very early hours i spent the day at hospital. when i was released my partner had ordered me a taxi to get me and bring me home. since i was taken to the hospital by ambulance i didnt bring my purse-it was the last thing on my mind at the time i passed out from the blood loss. my partner had told them he would pay at the end when i was home like all taxis anyhow you always pay at the end. the taxi showed up at the hospital i got in we drove about 5 mins the driver pulled over and said it would be £15 i said yes i know ill get the money at home he said no he wanted now i said im very sry but i dont have it now i dont have my purse my partners paying at the house he said get out now i said what? he said no money get out now i said i do have the money to pay it but i dont have it this second i explained i had a miss carry and hemorage and was taken by ambulance so i didnt have my purse but my partners at home and has the money ready he said he didnt care about that and said get my money or get out now i said why cant i pay at the end when i get home why now he said because he wants it now he then said give me your phone or laptop as a deposit i said i dont have anything of value i was in hospital!! he said get out i said i cant i had a hemorage i cant stand more then a few mins, cant walk, and i dont have a phone how am i supost to get home ill pass out and hemorage again. he said get the fuck out my car i said no you cant leave me like that he aggressivly pulled out ragging the car around and said the manager will make you get out the manager said i had to get out i explained again and again he said no you have to get out here (i was under a bridge at midnight!!!!) he said i was making up my miss carry!!!! said i was stupid for not having my purse!!! told me i was stupid again for not having my phone and said i should have brought it with me even though i was pass out by the time the ambulance got to my house!! he opened my door and yelled at me to get out i was in tears and said im going to the papers then he slam the door and told the driver to take me to the hospital. they were both so rude saying its not there problem its my problem and that im making up my miss carry and making up being in hospital!! the driver started driving again then said you gunna show me anything? i said show you what? he said if i had something to show him that will be worth while he will think about taking me home, i said show you what, what are you talking about he turned around looked at my chest and said show me. how sick are theese people!!!! its never ok to ask that but i just had a late miss carry i lost my baby!!!!!!! i needed surgery because it was late it got lodged in the cervix causing hemorage and pain. they just didnt care at all what i was going through, i dont expect much but i expect kindness and a little understanding that im hurting and cant be assed with this shit. on top of that he called me a stupid bitch he was so sick rude and nasty there was no need for any of it. he should not be a taxi driver!!! he tried to take advantage of me being in a vulnerble state of mind all i wanted was to get home so i could eat since i couldnt eat all day, take a bath, and go to bed and try to forget about what just happend and they made it so much worse because i had to remember it and talk about it so the police could get involved its not fair i have to remember this!!

Hi to all the team @ kings Taxis, would like to thank you all for looking after our mother for the last 10 years or so. As you are aware she has passed away on 5th August surly she will be missed by the drivers as you did treat her like your family. Hope you guys all the best for the future. Also may I take this opportunity to thank the management for giving us the free taxis on day of funeral it touched our hearts. Thanks The Parkes family
