Glasgow Taxis were quickly able to trace the driver, Eddie Spears, and return Willie’s phone.
Glasgow Taxis chairman Dougie McPherson said: “We were delighted to be able to quickly trace Eddie, return the phone to Willie and help put his mind at ease.

“It’s a shared occurrence for items, especially phones, to be left behind in taxis like this.
“When the customer’s address and contact details are known thanks to the systems we have in place it’s easy to return them – in any instances when that isn’t the case, all items would be handed in to Police Scotland lost character.”
