'Total chaos created for people just trying to work'

Emily Toner told ITV London that she was forced to hire a Boris bike because of the crowds at Liverpool Street station:

When arriving at Liverpool Street at the Tube, I discovered the gates were still not open so I resorted to using a Boris bike to get into work.

Total chaos has been caused to good people just trying to get to work.
