Uber has had its licence to operate in Sheffield suspended.

The taxi app failed to respond to requests from Sheffield City Council about the management of the firm, the council said.

Uber can continue to operate in the city until December 18, and if it appeals against the suspension, it can still run until the appeal is finalised.

A spokesman for the council said: ‘If it decides against an appeal the suspension will come into force.’

Sheffield is the second British city to take action against Uber after the firm was stripped of its licence in London back in September.
