London's transport authority on Monday refused to renew an operating licence for the ride-hailing giant Uber because of safety and security concerns.

"Transport for London has concluded that it will not grant Uber London Limited a new private hire operator's licence in response to its latest application," it said in a statement.

In September, Uber was granted a two-month extension to its licence following the expiry of a previous 15-month agreement. The extension was conditional on passenger safety improvements.
