A taxi driver who refused to pick up a blind couple because letting their guide dog in his cab was ‘against his religion’ has been ordered to pay almost £600.
Charles Bloch, 22, and his girlfriend Jessica Graham, 21, booked a ride with Leicester cab firm ADT Taxis in July, last year.
The pair, who were both born with a visual impairment and are registered blind, were with Mr Bloch’s guide dog Carlo.
But when driver Abandi Jamal Kassim arrived to pick them up, he would not allow the dog into his cab.
