RMT member 'told Boris not to give in on ticket offices'

London Underground management and RMT leaders are involved in talks at conciliation service Acas as they attempt to avert a planned 72-hour Tube strike next week.

"He said 'I'm an RMT member. Whatever you do don't give in.This is the right thing to do' - and that's what we're going to do," the mayor said.

The union staged a 48-hour strike earlier this week.
