Tube problems despite fare hike

Around noon, Tube travellers, who have also seen fares rise by an average of 4.2% today, were badly affected by a signal failure at Baker Street in north-west London.

This meant that Metropolitan services were suspended between Baker Street and Aldgate, while trains on the Circle Line and on the Hammersmith & City Line were severely delayed.
