Uber to report crimes direct to police as part of measures to improve safety



Uber is to report crimes directly to the police and will set up a phone line as part of measures to improve safety.

 
Last year, a Metropolitan Police officer said in a letter that passengers were being put at risk because of delays in the reporting of sexual assaults.


The company said it was changing its policy "after listening to feedback".


It is currently appealing against Transport for London's decision to withdraw its operating licence.


TfL said the ride-hailing service was not a "fit and proper operator" in its ruling last year.
