In emails between the woman and the taxi company, seen by Newsweek, she said her driver was ‘very forward and quite creepy’.

She then added he asked to perform oral sex on her.

Writing in the email, she said: “Towards the end of the journey he was asking if I liked blow jobs, saying that he was very good at going down on girls or giving ‘sucky sucky’ to girls and did I want him to do it to me.

“He even suggested that he could pull over into a side street and do it now if I wanted, which I think was the scariest part of the drive.”

In their reply, an Uber representative replied, insisting they were ‘already investigating this with [the driver]' and the 'necessary actions will be taken to avoid a similar incident in future'.

They also told the woman that they’d refunded her fare and added £20 to her account.

Uber has since insisted the driver is ‘no longer on the Uber platform’, adding: “Fortunately incidences of this nature are so rare that an official policy is not needed.

“Any incident is handled on a case-by-case basis and taken very seriously.

“We do of course often refund a trip after a negative experience of any sort, as our customers expect only the highest standard of service form Uber.”
