Taxi firms accused of taking residents for a ride because of the snow
Fares have surged by as much as 500 per cent
CAB companies in the borough have been accused of taking advantage of the snow by hiking their prices.
The Times has been contacted by a furious reader who claims she was quoted �30 for a journey that usually costs �6 over the weekend.
According to the mother-of-two, who wishes to be anonymous, her journey from Wembley to Neasden would have cost her 500 per cent more.
The Times called a number of cab firms and two of them admitted they were charging extra because of the weather.
