A BROTHER and sister have been jailed for a vicious attack on a taxi driver.
Adam Lynch and his sister, Kimberley, both of Dalton, set upon taxi driver Rashid Ahmed in June last year. Adam, 25, racially abused him while his 26-year-old sister repeatedly hit Mr Ahmed with a stiletto shoe during an incident on Somerset Road between Aspley and Almondbury.

Kimberley Lynch then joined in the assault using her shoe to hit Mr Ahmed about five or six times on the back of his head.
