Customers of ride-hailing services such as Uber are expressing their frustration and anger over the cost of journeys in the capital and around the UK.

A recent increase in prices, believed to be caused by driver shortages, has led to a number of Twitter posts by disgruntled ride-hail users.

One person took to the social media platform to say: "Uber and Bolt both tried to charge me £49 to get from Peckham to Hither Green. Ride-hailing in London is officially a write-off."

Another wrote: "The prices for Uber in London last night were DISGUSTING.” This was followed by: “An Uber from Charing Cross to West London shouldn’t cost £107 for 3 people, no matter if it’s Halloween weekend.”

Ceriexe posted on Twitter, saying: "Uber try quote me £59 to get from London Bridge to Hackney?" Whilst another claimed they were being charged over £40 to get from Acton to Southall.

The ride-hailing giant from Silicon Valley lost another fare when they quoted Kate English almost £60 to get home. She said: "Right - you ok with that? Because I'm walking home. Ridiculous price."

George Lineker, son of former professional footballer and host of Match of the Day, Gary Lineker, took to Twitter to have his say on the current issues within the industry, saying: "Uber's a complete shambles. Free Now no one available, Gett want 30 quid to go 2 miles and can't pull over a cab."
