LU managing director Mike Brown said:

"Many thousands of LU and TfL staff are working hard again today to keep customers informed and to keep London moving and open for business.

"I am grateful to our customers for their patience, and we will be doing everything we can to run as many services as possible. I'm pleased that more staff have come to work today than yesterday.
