A pilot has claimed a taxi driver who picked him up from Bristol Airport was watching cricket on his phone while speeding at 90mph. Jon Anson, who works for Eastern Airways, had an Arrow Cars taxi booked for him for a journey from Bristol to Humberside on Monday (July 1).

Arrow Cars has insisted the driver was just "listening" to the cricket and that the company's drivers are "very professional".

Kim Komando Special to USA TODAY Published 5:00 AM EDT May 23, 2019 Most of us have a love-hate relationship with cable. We like television. We love a handful of stations. But we don't need hundreds of useless channels, many of them boring, some of them in languages we don't understand. Month after month, we pay our cable bills, yet we use only a small fraction of what we pay for. It’s no wonder that cutting the cord seems so appealing.
