Uber stripped of London licence, plans to appeal

London stripped Uber on Sept. 22 of its licence to operate from the end of next week in a huge blow to the taxi service and 3.5 million users in one of the world's wealthiest cities.

The capital's transport authority said the Silicon Valley technology giant was not fit and proper to hold a private vehicle hire licence and it would not be renewed when it expires on Sept. 30.
