Norfolk police have confirmed that no action will be taken against Albies Taxis.

The allegations included credit card fraud from a customer and pointless journeys and had been made by the family of a man who had metal health problems.

In a statement Andy Kitchen, who runs the taxi firm based at Suffling Road, said: 'Following a lengthy investigation, Albies Taxis have been cleared by the police of allegations of fraud and taking advantage of a vulnerable individual.

'These allegations have been rigorously investigated, and have been proven false and unfounded by the police.'
