A taxi in Southend On Sea has managed to defy the laws of physics this evening by remaining five minutes away for two hours. 

Representatives of the Greenwich Observatory have confirmed that the probable causes could either be a temporary rupture in the space-time continuum or that the cab office is manned by lying bastards. 

Passenger Mo Down said: ‘It’s like some kind of black hole for Hackney Carriage vehicles.’

‘Physicists will be discussing this for generations to come. How can a taxi drive at 27 mph continually towards a fixed target and still remain five minutes from arriving.’

‘I’ll definitely be turning it into a mobile vomit comet later on.’
