A sleeping schoolboy was accidentally driven off in a taxi to an airport after the driver and his dad failed to realise he was still inside the vehicle.
Police were called at 9.20am on Friday morning after the six-year-old boy was driven to Glasgow Airport after his dad was dropped off in Maryhill.
They had both been picked up from the airport, before the father got dropped off and the driver made the 11-mile return trip with the sleeping child in the back without realising.
Police Scotland confirmed the incident and stressed that there was no concern for the child’s welfare, with the driver involved ensuring the child and his father were quickly reunited.
A police spokesperson said: “Around 9.20am this morning, police were called after a taxi driver dropping off passengers in Maryhill inadvertently drove off with a sleeping child in the back.
“The taxi driver was located a short time later and the child, a six-year-old boy, was reunited with the parents.
“[There was] no concern for [the] child.
“Advice and assistance [was] given.”
A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: “We are aware of the incident and can confirm that the taxi driver concerned ensured the child and his father were quickly reunited when the highly-unusual situation became clear.”
