Tube strike causes mayhem for commuters
- Credit: PA
As London Underground is completely closed today due to strike action, commuters are braving crowded buses, jogging to work or working from home.
Members of the RMT, Unite and TSSA unions are on a 24 hour strike until Friday morning, when tube services will still be disrupted.
The chaos began last night and is set to continue all day until Friday morning when services resume as normal.
The strike is being held as part of a dispute about pay and workers’ conditions when the new night tube is introduced.
Staff on the DLR, London Overground, TfL rail, trams and buses are not striking, but these services will be much busier than usual.

It is almost a rite of passage for Londoners to experience a tube strike, but for many it is apparently an unpleasant and crowded experience.
This morning people are walking, cycling or jogging to work – or avoiding the chaos and working from home.
