A 48-hour strike by London Underground workers began this morning, causing widespread disruption for commuters in the capital.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) started a 48-hour strike at 9pm last night over a long-running dispute about plans to close Tube ticket offices.
The union says the closure of ticket offices will cost hundreds of job losses and threaten safety, while LU says staff would be better employed on station concourses as only 3% of tickets are bought at ticket offices.
Normal underground services will resume tomorrow night at 9pm before a a three-day stoppage from 9pm next Monday.
