A drunk woman was left with a bill of nearly £400 after getting an Uber from London to Newcastle.

Helen Dryden, 25, had been day drinking in Shoreditch, East London and attempted to travel back using the car service to her home in Guilford, which is around 30 miles and should have cost about £80.

However, Helen fell asleep in the car and didn't realise that her 'home' setting was actually set for her university digs in Newcastle.

She said: ''I couldn't believe it. The whole day ended up costing me about £400.

''I feel so embarrassed. I was a bit too drunk and just fell asleep. I was devastated when I woke up. I feel really stupid and completely ridiculous.

''I got too drunk. I'm supposed to be getting more responsible as I get older but it's not happening so far.''
