LONDON cabbie John Jupp got more than he bargained for when a regular customer made an apparently innocent enquiry as to whether he accepted dogs in his car.

But that was before she revealed the destination.

“She asked if I took dogs in my taxi,” he explained. “She then asked me to give her a price to pick up a dog and bring it to her house in Knightsbridge, so I asked her for the address. Her reply was a moment I will not forget – Madrid.”

Jupp – who refuses to reveal the cost of the fare – then took a ferry to Santander before driving four hours to Madrid.

Having collected his canine cargo, he set off on the 16-hour return trip to Calais.

Despite experiencing some teething problems over a vet’s certificate at the French port, Jupp delivered the labrador the following day.
