I know this is a Metrocab, but what should it be listed as?

It was designed and introduced by MCW (Metro-Cammell-Weymann) in 1987, sold to Reliant in 1989, and later (no date available) to Hooper. In 1997 the Series 2 arrived (too late for this film).

So we have:
- MCW Metrocab (1987-89)
- Reliant Metrocab (1989-early 90s)
- Hooper Metrocab (since)

I just noticed the third brake light. Since when is this legal in the UK?

I'd say Hooper Metrocab. Third brake lights have been around a long time but were only made a legal requirement in the last few years. The film is 1995.

CHMSL doesn't necessarily mean much and can be found on older Metrocabs (travelling a lot in stop start traffic makes them useful for taxis):

Door handles also looked chromed, so this is probably an early MCW one.
