Christ, this one's grim. A black cab driver apparently killed himself via the novel expedient of a motorised noose in Southwark today. The unnamed cabbie, believed to be in his thirties, tied one end of a rope around his neck and the other around a lamp post. He then drove off at speed; enough speed to completely sever his head. The incident happened in Great Southwark Street in the early hours of this morning near a disused petrol station. Those first on the scene found the cab smashed against a pillar with the decapitated head laying nearby. A sad, sad way to end a life.
