I gave birth in the back of a taxi – I was in shock when the cab firm sent me a clean-up bill

A MUM who gave birth in the back of a cab at 40mph was shocked when the firm sent her a £60 cleaning bill days after she welcomed her baby.

Farah Cacanindin, 26, unexpectedly went into labour five ­minutes into a 13-mile trip to hospital for a routine check-up.

She delivered daughter Naia herself in the Vauxhall Vivaro while the cabbie phoned ahead to alert staff at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Days later, Farah, from High Wycombe, Bucks, was billed £90 by Arrow Taxis — for a £30 fare plus the resulting clean-up.

Farah, also mum to 15-month-old son Kairo, said: “I understand that I did make a mess but it’s a bit cheeky to have charged me.”
