Uber driver plays video games while ferrying Sun journalist through London's busy streets

A Sun journalist has filmed his Uber driver playing video games on his phone while driving on a trip he took last week through the busy streets of London. Neal Baker, filmed his driver on a 20 second clip, but said the driver was playing the game from the start of the journey. Baker said in a report to the Sun : "I was heading home from my late night shift and as soon as I got in the Uber I noticed a bright colourful screen beside the driver. "When we set off he began tapping at it right away and it started flashing colours" Baker also added: "I was terrified. I looked in the rear view mirror to see if he was looking at the road and I saw he had his eyes glued to the screen." Mr Baker was refunded for the trip and now Uber are investigating the claims.
