Uber driver banned after video emerges of man in Rochdale with his trousers down next to woman holding head in her hands | The Sun
UBER has banned a driver after a video emerged showing a man pulling up his trousers while a young woman holds her head in her hands in the back of a car.
The disturbing clip shows the driver pulling up his pants after apparently being seen in the backseat of a car next to a blonde woman.
Uber are investigating after the footage was shared widely online.
In the video, the driver is confronted by a man in Rochdale, Manchester after the car was seen parked in a driveway.
Spotting the man in the back seat with a young blonde girl, the cameraman asks: “Yo, what are you doing?”
The driver calmly gets out of the car and moves to the drivers seat as the man asks: “Brother, what are you doing at my house? What are you doing?”
