Scooter riding Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow is on the warpath after a series of terrifying experiences with London taxi drivers.

The actress, who is dating British COLDPLAY singer Chris Martin, has taken to riding a scooter to get around her adopted home city - but she's on the verge of ditching it after a few near misses with the city's distinctive black cabs.

A friend explains, "Gwyneth loves her scooter, but she can't believe how the cabbies drive - a couple of times they've almost run her off the road."
