What an uber-disaster

A man from London has ended up paying £467 for an Uber after accidentally going via Bristol.

The journey also took him on an unexpected tour through Thatcham and Newbury.

Aaron Wray, 18-years-old, was trying to get to Croydon from Brixton on Sunday, in a journey that should have taken 30 minutes.

But Uber claims he entered the wrong destination on the app and, after falling asleep, went on a five-and-a-half-hour round trip.

The company says it is going to refund the fee as a "goodwill" gesture.
