Business chiefs have welcomed the news that the Night Overground service is extending to Canonbury and Highbury and Islington from Friday.

The service from New Cross Gate currently terminates at Dalston Junction but will carry on for two more stops, benefiting thousands of passengers by joining the Victoria Line, served by the Night Tube.

The trains will run approximately every 15 minutes.

Christine Lovett, CEO of the Angel.London business district, said: “Angel is home to a thriving night time economy; we have countless restaurants, cafes, bars, cinemas and music venues.

“We are thrilled to hear the Night Overground will link Islington and Angel up to southeast and east London. It will provide affordable and safe transport for visitors, residents and staff who work in the local area.”

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “These night-time services are providing a huge boost to our economy and a safe and reliable way for people to travel across the capital.”
