POLICE have set up an investigating after a Royston taxi company became the victim of a scam.

The firm was called to an address in Shruberry Grove, Royston, on June 20 and asked to collect a parcel.

The taxi driver was met outside by a man who persuaded him to pay £30 for the parcel and asked for it to be delivered to Elstree Film Studios.

The driver was promised the money and his fare would be returned upon delivery.

No-one was waiting for the parcel at the destination and the driver did not get the money back.

Police inquiries are on-going.
