Talks to avert strike

Talks will take place today, aimed at averting a tube strike next week.

Maintenance workers are due to stage a 72-hour strike on Tuesday from 4pm.

Tube Lines carries out upgrades and repairs on the Piccadilly, Northern and Jubilee Lines - and was bought by Transport for London two years ago.
