London commuters battle to get home as tube strike begins
Transport chiefs warned of a rush-hour surge as underground closes until Friday morning, with commuters posting pictures of the chaos online
London commuters were starting to battle major transport problems as the most widespread tube strike in decades started on Wednesday evening.
The 24-hour industrial action began at 6.30pm, with disruption meaning services would not resume until Friday morning. After 6.30pm on Wednesday some stations were quieter than usual, with some services still running at 7pm, although staff said all services would definitely cease by 8pm.
