Indian taxi-hailing giant Ola is moving into the UK as it continues to challenge Uber around the world.
The company, which was founded in 2011, has 125 million customers and already operates in 110 cities. It plans to start business in South Wales and Greater Manchester.
Unlike Uber it will offer a choice of private hire vehicle or black taxi.
It says it is working with local authorities across the UK to expand nationwide by the end of 2018.
