Uber granted stay of execution after filing TfL appeal

Uber could continue to be hailed across London for another year after officially filing its appeal against Transport for London's decision to revoke its London license.

The appeal was submitted to Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday in the first stage of a legal process which could take months or years to reach a conclusion.

Uber's appeal is expected to take place on December 11.

Mayor Sadiq Khan support TfL's decision and said: "All companies in London must play by the rules, if you do play by the rules, you're welcome in London. As our new CEO has said, we are determined to make things right".

The NOPD, Louisiana State Police and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the scene. New Orleans SWAT surrounded the building and were able to get the suspect to peacefully surrender, Harrison said.

Uber's licence expired on 30 September after it was told by TfL told it that it would not be renewed over concerns that the ride-hailing firm is not "fit and proper" to operate a private hire service in London, citing concerns with the "conduct and approach" of the firm.

The authorities have a number of concerns about Uber, including its approach to reporting serious criminal offences and its use of technology that allegedly helps it to evade law enforcement officials.

Uber has also been criticised over its treatment of drivers, and is awaiting a separate tribunal ruling over the employment status of what it terms "partners". A petition launched by Uber to protest TfL's decision has gathered more than 800,000 signatures.

If Uber loses its appeal, 40,000 jobs will be on the line and although Uber and Londoners believe the company should be allowed to stick around, other members of the UK Government disagree. However, polls have indicated a small majority back the decision to stop a firm that Khan said was not "playing by the rules". Black-cab drivers say Uber is artificially driving down fares to a level that will not be sustainable.
