Tube strike: What you need to know

No services will run on most of London Underground if a 24-hour strike by drivers goes ahead on Thursday.

Some Tubes are likely to finish early on Wednesday evening and start later on Friday because of the planned walkout by members of the drivers' union Aslef in a dispute over working practices.

Transport for London issued the warning as talks continued at the conciliation service Acas to try to avert the industrial action.

Should the planned strike action go ahead, there will be substantial disruption. We will do everything possible to ensure customers can get around on alternative transport services and have the right information to help them do this. We are committed to ensuring that our employees are able to maintain a good balance between their work and personal lives and we have been working closely with the unions on new ways to achieve this. I encourage the Aslef leadership to continue working with us constructively rather than moving towards unnecessary strike action.

– Nigel Holness, director of network operations for London Underground
