More than 600,000 people have signed a petition calling on Transport for London to reverse its decision to stop Uber operating in the capital.

Save Your Uber in London was started by the taxi-hailing company on the Change.org website after Friday's announcement by TfL that it would not renew its licence when it ends on 30 September.

Uber protest petition tops 600,000

The burgeoning number of signatures makes it the fastest growing petition in the UK this year.
Kajal Odedra, UK director at Change.org said: "The speed with which this grew shows how powerful online campaigning can be.
"In just 24 hours we've seen hundreds of thousands of people start and sign petitions on either side of the Uber/TfL debate.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan backed the TfL decision and in fresh comments said anger "should be directed at Uber".
He said: "I know that Uber has become a popular service for many Londoners - but it would be wrong for TfL to licence Uber if there was any way this could pose a threat to Londoners' safety or security.
"As Mayor of London I welcome innovative new companies that help Londoners by providing a better and more affordable service - but providing an innovative service is not an excuse for not following the rules.
"All companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect - particularly when it comes to the safety of customers.

"I have every sympathy with Uber drivers and customers affected by this decision but their anger really should be directed at Uber. They have let down their drivers and customers by failing, in the view of TfL, to act as a fit and proper operator.
"I suspect it will take some time before this situation with Uber fully plays out.
"In the meantime, I will continue my work to help support innovative businesses in London and to create a vibrant and safe taxi and private hire market."
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn backed TfL and said it had looked at the firm and "expressed very serious concerns".
Speaking before his party's conference in Brighton, he said: "TfL are there to protect all of us and I think they are doing the right thing.
"Obviously people need to be able to travel, obviously they want to be able to access cabs.
"Those cabs must be safe, must be regulated and must be available for all."
Frank Field MP, chairman of the work and pensions committee, told Sky News: "Many workers have been trapped into working for the company
"It's a delicate situation. I hope by the end of the day we'll get a really good settlement for London but also for Uber drivers.

"Uber is an immensely rich company… it's been very, very successful… this will be just one more heave to get Uber into a decent position where it fulfils its commitment to its workforce as well as to its travelling public."
