A taxi driver thought he was on his way to pick up a passenger – but when he turned up he discovered he had won a cash prize.

Asrim Hasani, who works for Airport Direct, in Cricklewood, was crowned ‘star of the month’ by booking app Kabbee.

He was one of ten taxi drivers across the UK to be awarded a £200 cash prize after consistent high ratings for the level of service provided.

Mr Hasani said: “It was a complete surprise to hear I’ve won driver of the month - I’m very happy.

“My fleet told me I had been assigned with a special job, and I turned up at Kabbee’s offices to be congratulated as a winner.”
