Hundreds of thousands of commuters faced disruption last week when members of the RMT union went on strike. A further walkout planned for this week was cancelled on Monday after the union and managers struck a deal on a station-by-station review.

London Underground says it is committed to the closure of all 254 ticket offices but Transport Commissioner Sir Peter Hendy said the 950 jobs were up for discussion:

I wouldn't be surprised if the number goes down a bit. The detail of it is very negotiable.

Sir Peter also said he doubted the former RMT leader Bob Crow would have allowed last week's strike to happen:

My own view is he would not have had last week's strike. He would have worked out shrewdly what was in his members' best union.
