Grabbing a ride home just got a whole lot easier for people in Scotland.

Despite being available in eight major cities in England, the ride-hailing app is not available in Wales and had not been available anywhere in Scotland until now.

Plans to introduce the service to Edinburgh earlier in the year were delayed and although officials insist they still hope to launch in the Scottish capital, they have admitted that they don't know exactly when that will be.

In the meantime, those in Wales and Northern Ireland will have to wait their turn.
