An attack on yet another taxi driver has led to drivers calling for a boycott of the Lisson Grove area of London.
The attack, which took place at around 8pm on November 5th left the cabbies two week old vehicle seriously damaged.
Taxi driver, David Folwell, took to facebook to explain how a group 30 or 40 masked people began throwing bricks, bottles and cones at his vehicle in the attack which took place in Lisson Grove, near the junction of Church Street.
The attack is the latest in a long series of incidents in the area, which has left taxi drivers both frustrated and angered at what is seen as a serious lack of action from the authorities.
The area around the Lisson Green Estate has always been seen as a hotbed for criminal activity in recent years, with the council seemingly aware of the high level of criminal activity.
The police are also fully aware of a multitude of incidents, with many taxi drivers reporting incidents involving "The Lisson Grove Mob."
Angered cabbies are now calling for decisive action from the police, with many calling for a boycott of the area and some even suggesting that a number of drivers should descend upon the area and confront the thugs.
Drivers have also roundly condemned the lack of police action surrounding the problem, with a number of drivers branding the authorities as "useless."
