Uber’s attempts at world domination show no sign of abating as the disruptive taxi app arrives at five more locations in the UK and parks itself at a new London headquarters.

The billion-dollar startup will move from King's Cross to take up a new spot of around 40,000 sq ft - double the size of its current offices - at the newly completed Aldgate Tower.

The building, located close to the City and startup centre Shoreditch, as well as connections to Canary Wharf, will benefit from the arrival of Crossrail in around three years time.
