The boss of one of Britain's biggest private hire car firms has unleashed a war of words between his firm and the cycling lobby over his calls for minicabs to be able to use bus lanes.
John Griffin, chairman and founder of private hire taxi firm Addison Lee, told the Today programme's Justin Webb that "this is not about cyclists
this is about equality and fairness", adding that black cabs are allowed to use bus lanes which gives them "unfair competitive advantage" over minicabs.
But Eleanor Besley, policy advisor at Sustrans which run the National Cycle Network, said that "if all minicabs were using the bus lane what would be the point of bus lanes".
