Uber in Suffolk at last

Marjory Dawes with her Uber ride

Hi-tech minicab company Uber has finally arrived in Suffolk, we can reveal.

Our exclusive photo shows Uber’s first local customer enjoying her trip to the shops.

Marjory Dawes, 73, was picked up outside her home in Framsden and driven all the way to Debenham for a spot of shopping.

“It was a very good service,” she explained. “I used the app to get the nearest vehicle to come and get me, and before long this very nice young man picked me up with his tractor.

“The journey was very comfortable and I would recommend Uber in Suffolk.”

Uber spokesperson Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “We’re delighted Marjory enjoyed her trip.”
