Our members are reporting that it is chaos out there this morning, the worst that we have seen in months. It does TFL no favours to mislead the public by claiming that there are minor delays on lines that are in total meltdown.
Following a partial tunnel collapse at Mile End at the weekend, this morning's signal failure at Baker street is further evidence that the infrastructure of the tube is struggling to cope with the Mayors cuts to maintenance schedules.
Transport for London said the problems were caused by a "single track circuit failure" at the height of the rush hour just before 8am
Underground staff at Paddington were forced to close the ticket barriers as the platforms became overcrowded.
Tens of thousands of tube commuters faced a chaotic journey to work this morning because of a signal failure. The breakdown caused severe delays on three lines - the Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Circle.
Protesters are expected to gather ahead of a meeting at Hammersmith Hospital, where it is expected that plans to close the A&E will be rubberstamped.
Other proposals expected to be given the final go-ahead include plans to close Central Middlesex A&E and demolish Charing Cross Hospital.
A Victorian train tunnel that was left derelict has been given a new lease of life as part of Crossrail. The tunnel was built in 1878 and has not been in passenger use since 2006.
Work was required to deepen, strengthen and widen the structure and to remove 135 years of coal and soot from the bricks from the steam trains that originally used the tracks. Last summer, 13 million litres of water were drained from the dock that runs above the tunnel to allow Crossrail workers to access the structure from above.
The rail tunnel originally served the Royal Docks when they formed the largest enclosed docks in the world, serving large ships from all over the globe. It survived a hit from a bomb during WW2 and is the only existing tunnel that will be re-used for Crossrail.
Despite working, 48% of 20-to-34 year olds who live with their parents say this is because they can't afford to rent or buy their own home, new Shelter research reveals.
A lack of affordable housing was the single biggest reason why so many young adults in England are unable to fly the nest, a YouGov poll commissioned by the charity found. Additional data from the Census, released to Shelter, showed there are 1.97 million working young adults living with their parents. This accounts for a quarter of all 20-to-34 year old working adults in England.
London and its landmarks dominate overseas perceptions of the UK new research by the British Council has found.

This was followed by three London landmarks: Big Ben (7%), Buckingham Palace (5%) and the British Museum (5%). The only other city in the top ten was Cambridge, in seventh place (1%). In total, around two thirds named London or one of its landmarks.
