At a meeting held by the York Council's Gambling, Licensing and Regulatory Committee on Tuesday, the committee deemed Uber to not be a fit and proper operator.

Uber's 12 month licence is set to expire on New Year's Eve, and Uber says it will be reviewing the decision once it receives formal notification from the council.

Council members in York have voted not to renew Uber's operating licence, condemning the ride-hailing company to its third United Kingdom city ban in as many months.

"Applying the legislation, the committee has chose to refuse the application having concerns about a data breach now under investigation and the number of complaints received".

However, just four related to drivers for the firm that had been licensed by York council - leading to fears that Uber vehicles are coming into the city from other areas.

Passengers tell us they love being able to track their auto on a live map, pay without cash and get a receipt with their fare and the route taken, said Neil McGonigle, General Manager for Uber in York.

Sheffield officials said they had now had "productive discussions" with Uber and are looking into a new license application submitted by the Silicon Valley firm.

More than half of them were attributed to Uber.

The tech firm now faces legal battles in three major United Kingdom cities after having its license suspended in London in September and Sheffield last week.

In Sheffield this month, regulators suspended the firm's license, claiming Uber "failed to respond to requests, made by our licensing team, about the management of Uber".

Further hearings will take place next week to decide whether the GMB trade union and the London Taxi Drivers' Association can participate in the case.

The report said the decision was taken after councillors heard from nine objectors to the company and decided not to give the ride-hailing company licence to ply on the streets of the city. That's according to Neil McGonigle, Head of Cities in the north of England.
