Uber's dramatic growth in London has seen the number of private hire vehicles on the capital's roads surge by 26pc over the past two years. The arrival in the UK of the car-hailing app jumpstarted the stagnating minicab sector, which had seen the number of private hire vehicles climb by 3pc between 2009 and 2011 and drop by 2pc in the following two years. There are now 62,754 private hire vehicles in London, up from 49,854 in 2013, according to the Department for Transport.
