Detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to after a taxi driver was robbed at knife point.

The victim had picked up three men on Kirkgate who asked to be taken to Agbrigg on Sunday at around 2.45am.

As he turned onto Regent Street, Belle Vue, one of the men threatened the driver with a knife and demanded money.

Another suspect hit the driver with a metal bar and stole his takings.

All three men, who are thought to be Middle Eastern, fled the taxi.

Two suspects were described as around 25-years-old and of slim build.

The third man was around 40 years old with balding hair and moustache.

Anyone with information should contact Wakefield CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
