Uber: Theresa May says London ruling is disproportionate

Prime Minister Theresa May tells the BBC that Transport for London's decision not to renew Uber's private hire licence was "disproportionate".

Speaking ahead of the Conservative Party conference, she said the ruling "risked 40,000 jobs and of course... damaged the lives of those 3.5 million Uber users".

The company is appealing against the decision but has apologised for its "mistakes".
