A man who robbed and racially abused a taxi driver in the Moorlands is today starting a three year jail sentence.
A court was told Samuel Egerton got into a taxi on Dilhorne Road, Cheadle in August 2019. Just before it got to his home address in Cheddleton, he was racially abusive to the taxi driver, threatened him with violence and demanded cash before running off.
A video of the incident was circulated on social media and Egerton was arrested in January last year.
The 23-year-old admitted robbery and religiously aggravated fear or provocation of violence.
