AMONG those cab drivers who have been physically abused while behind the wheel is Alan Gunn, who was left disfigured after an unprovoked attack.
The 47-year-old driver was pummelled “30 or 40 times” by Nathan Mackay outside the then 21-year-old’s home in Gorgie in July 2009.
When the father-of-three returned to work months later, a brick was thrown at his taxi on his first night.
“That just crumbled me,” he told the Evening News last year.
Today Mr Gunn said: “I used to work all night, but now I come home earlier.
“I still believe that 99 per cent of passengers are good, honest people but I’m a lot more wary now.”
