Uber gets London licence back for 15 mths

London (AFP) – Uber won a legal bid on Tuesday to restore its operating license in London after a judge overturned a decision to deny the ride-hailing app a permit and granted it a 15-month reprieve. 

Transport officials in the British capital had stripped the American firm of its license last September amid safety concerns, but Uber appealed the decision and convinced the judge that it had mended its ways.
