Sheffield City Council has suspended Uber's licence to operate in the city from 18 December after the company failed to respond to requests for information about its management.

Transport for London, which has criticised the firm's record over reporting criminal offences and carrying out driver background checks, decided not to renew Uber's London licence after it deemed the firm "unfit" to run a taxi service.

Uber's licence to operate in the northern English city of Sheffield was suspended last Friday after it failed to respond to requests about the management of the taxi app, the local authority said.

Taxi firm Uber have reportedly had its licence suspended by Sheffield City Council.

"Any new application is dealt with by the licensing department who will decide if those applying for the licence meet the criteria. If the new application can't be resolved by December 18, we will of course submit an appeal so we can continue to serve the people of Sheffield".
