TAXI firm leaders have praised the drivers who worked during Eid so as not to let customers down as normal service resumes. 

Maz Shakil, a spokesperson for Worcester-based taxi firm Woober, said it had been a busy time as Muslims marked Eid on Wednesday, the end of Ramandan and one of the holiest days in the Islamic calendar.

Drivers reminded customers that there may be a shortage of drivers as Muslims across the city celebrated Eid by visiting the mosque or spending time with friends and family.

Mr Shakil said: "We extend our warmest wishes of Eid Mubarak to all who celebrated this joyous occasion.

"This Eid marked one of our busiest days of the year, and we are truly grateful to all the dedicated drivers who stepped up to cover the increased demand.

"While we strived to accommodate as many requests as possible, we regret any inconvenience caused to clients whose jobs we were unable to fulfill.

"As we resume full operations, our commitment to delivering smiles to our customers remains unwavering.

"At Woober, we take pride in not just being a taxi company but a dedicated member of the local community.

"We look forward to continuing to serve and support our community with passion and dedication."
