(TfL) had "one or two" issues regarding the accuracy of details provided by Uber, a lawyer for London's transport regulator said on Tuesday during a hearing over the taxi app's appeal against the loss of its licence.

A hearing is taking place at Westminster Magistrates' Court to decide on administrative matters before Uber's appeal against TfL's decision to strip it of its licence is heard in court, which a judge hopes will take place in April.

"The decision letter says, well, there are one or two issues about the extent to which the information given to was correct," lawyer Martin Chamberlain told the court. "That is one of the points that the decision is based."

After was stripped of its operating licence in September, the firm's boss met with TfL's Commissioner and promised to make things right in the British city, its most important European market.
