Underground cleaners strike

Cleaners on London Underground will go on strike today for 48 hours, in a row over an Olympic bonus payment.

Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport Union who are employed by private contractors will walk out at 5:30am.

They're set to mount picket lines outside tube stations in London - including Stratford, close to the Olympic park.
