Uber drivers refuse to pick up man with guide dog

A blind man from Birmingham has spoken of his humiliation at being refused taxis operated by the online private hire firm Uber.

Saleh Ahmed, from Balsall Heath, travels with his guide dog to New Street Station every day on his way to work in Worcester.

Uber said it was "totally unacceptable" for drivers to refuse to take a guide dog.

"Licensed private hire drivers must carry service animals in their vehicle and we remind all drivers of this legal obligation before they start using the Uber app," it said in a statement.
