Commuters returning to work after the Platinum Jubilee long weekend faced “chaos” on the London Underground this morning as Tube station workers went on strike.
There was severe disruption across the network as 4,000 members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union stage a 24-hour walkout today (Monday, June 6).
A reduced timetable has been operating on some sections of London Underground lines and services are suspended elsewhere, with disruption expected until around 8am tomorrow (June 7).
Transport for London (TfL) has advised people to avoid travelling today if possible.
Construction worker Miguel Basantes was stranded at Paddington station as he tried to get to work in Hampstead, describing the situation as "chaos".
The 54-year-old said: "In Liverpool Street there were crowds of people and I was waiting for 20 or 30 minutes. I don’t know how to get to work.”
