A THURSO-based taxi firm has taken extra precautionary measures to keep its drivers and customers safe from coronavirus.

Pentland Cabs has invested in council approved safety screens to help minimise chances of infection.

Laurien Irvine, who runs the company, said: "We've now put screens up in our cars so the customers are more protected and feel safer on their journeys.

"We also have hand sanitiser in the vehicles for customers to use."

Laurien says that she sourced the £120 screens from a specialist supplier in England and each screen was custom-made for the various cabs in her fleet.

The transparent screens allow communication between driver and customer while providing a barrier to coronavirus.

"They've been professionally made and have been approved by the Highland Council licensing board and our insurers," she added.
