Londoners will soon be able to enjoy the same advantages as New Yorkers with the arrival of a 24-hour online delivery service.

Urbanfetch , currently operating in New York, is setting its sites on London and has raised £6m for the venture. The service has only been up and running in New York for a month but has proved popular.

Customers can order a selection of snacks, videos, books and other goods. Urbanfetch guarantees free delivery in under an hour and has a no-tipping policy for its couriers.
