A drunk university student fell asleep in an Uber on his way home after a boozy night and woke up 250 miles off course with a £1,300 bill. 

The student, who did not wish to be named, put the wrong postcode in his Uber app after a night out, dosed off and woke up 250 miles away.

He only realised his mistake after waking up in the taxi in Norwich, a five-hour drive away from his home in Newcastle near Newcastle University where he is a first year Chemical Engineering student.
