Transport company Uber has removed a driver from their app after he was caught receiving oral sex while driving an appalled passenger in Boston.

The passenger, stylist Aner Manuel, sent a complaint to Uber - as well as videos of the driver passionately kissing a female sitting in the seat next to him as sensual soul music plays through the car's stereo.

In the footage, Mr Manuel can be heard urging them to stop - but in the video's final clip she appears to be performing felatio on the driver, all while he continues driving.

A post Mr Manuel wrote on Uber's Facebook page describes the incident as "the most dangerous and inappropriate Uber ride ever" - and alleges the woman was "clearly on drugs".

He says after the oral sex started on the July 16 trip, he asked the Uber driver to drop him off.

Mr Manuel says that initially, they only refunded him and gave a US$10 ($13.50) credit - saying they were "investigating" - but he claims he heard nothing from them, and that they were "extremely bad at answering any messages".

In a statement to design and tech website Gizmodo, Uber said they were still in the process of investigating the incident.

"The behaviour of this former driver is appalling and is not tolerated on the Uber app," they said.

"As soon as this situation was reported to us, we immediately removed this driver's access."

Removing a driver's access is similar to a firing - but as none of the drivers are technically employed by Uber, they cannot be sacked.
