Taxi meeting over number concerns
Taxi drivers in Aberdeen have held meetings amid concerns about the growth in licensed cab numbers in the city.
Numbers have grown in recent years after the local authority removed limits on them.
Some cab drivers have claimed there are now so many of them that up to 40 taxis can be found waiting for a fare at one city centre rank.
Callum McCaig, of the city council's licensing committee, said he would listen to concerns.
He told BBC Scotland there were currently about 1,200 licensed taxis in the city.
"One of the problems may be a decline in trade due to the effects of the credit crunch," he said.
