Tube Chaos

Tube strike causing commuter chaos

A STRIKE BY LONDON UNDERGROUND staff is causing commuter chaos in London. The action is the first in a series of planned 24-hour work stoppages protesting 800 job cuts. Almost 40% of trains are running, with the Circle Line completely suspended. Many stations on the Northern Line are closed, but trains are running. For travel updates check here, or this great map.
