A BRITISH pensioner has called in police after being beaten up by Spanish taxi drivers.
The elderly man, who has terminal cancer, claims he suffered a nasty beating after accidentally reversing his car into a taxi in Alhaurin el Grande.
The bewildered expat was left with a large cut on his forearm after cabbies tried to wrestle his key from the ignition to prevent him driving off.
“They attacked him through the open window and knocked the key out of the ignition, breaking the fob into pieces,” said a friend, 50, who witnessed the attack.
It is believed the ‘territorial’ taxi drivers flew into a rage after they mistook the pensioner’s actions for a hit and run attempt.
