UberEats is to expanding its coverage to all of Zone Two and said it is also increasing the number of restaurants available for orders from 150 to 500.

The company said it had already signed up around 500,000 Londoners in the three months since launching in the capital.

New operators now signed up with the company include Leon, Paul and the Inception Group.

A spokesman said: “This expansion is good news for couriers who can now log in and operate anywhere in Zones 1 and 2 whenever they want - keeping them busier and so helping them make more money. We’re so confident that this expansion will keep couriers busy that we’re guaranteeing minimum hourly payments of £10 to £12 an hour during meal times by topping up payments if couriers have made less.”
