Two 24-hour strikes planned on London Underground this week have been suspended.

The industrial action, planned in response to concerns over the all-night Tube service, has now been suspended to 8 and 10 September - just days before the new service is due to launch on 12 September.

Nick Brown, LU's managing director, said: "It is good news for London that the strike has been suspended. We will now continue to work with the unions so that we can resolve this dispute and get on with delivering for our customers, businesses and London."

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: "Our negotiators have been able to make enough significant progress in talks at Acas over pay, jobs and night Tube to allow us to suspend this week's strike dates.

"We have still not reached a final agreement and as a result we are putting on additional strike action next month. In the meantime, the talks process will continue."


London Tube strikes causes chaos for commuters

Commuters in the South are facing delays this morning as strikes on the London Tube are underway.

Members walked out last night for 48 hours in protest at the closure of all ticket offices, with the loss of 950 jobs.

Reduced services were running on most lines, whilst many tube stations were closed, causing travel chaos.
