Speaking to Matt Stadlen, Uber driver Kofi said he didn't know how he would cope if Uber were to lose its licence.

He said: "I have been an Uber driver for nearly three years now, my whole life and my family depends on this.

"I've got a wife who does part time work as a carer and I do this full time, I have two kids I look after.

"This works perfectly well for my wife, myself and our kids, we are both able to work hard and look after our kids.

"This decision came as a shock, I am lost for words. I will be shattered. I don't know how I will be able to pay my rent.

"What am I going to do?"
