Coronavirus: Lowest number of Tube journeys since the 1800s

The coronavirus pandemic and the message to stay home has led to a huge drop in the number of people using the Tube.

On Easter Sunday 64,000 trips were made by Tube, the lowest number since the 1800s.

Figures show the number of people using London Underground was down 97% compared to the same time last year.

A union is demanding that London Underground drivers are provided with masks and gloves to help protect them from contracting Covid-19.

Aslef said its members working on the Tube are risking their own safety to provide a service for essential workers.
