Uber has had its licence to operate in Sheffield suspended after failing to respond to requests for information about its management.

The firm can continue to operate until December 18 and if it chooses to appeal the suspension, it can still run until that appeal is heard, Sheffield City Council said in a statement.

The taxi app firm is still fighting a ban in London after it lost its licence there in September. If it decides against an appeal the suspension will come into force. It will only be referred to the licensing sub-committee if a decision by the committee is required.

An Uber spokesperson said that it had applied to Sheffield City Council for a change of name on its licence because the individual named on the original licence was leaving the company.

The app will submit an appeal if the new application can not be resolved by 18 December, he added.
