Tube strike brings manic Monday for commuters in gridlocked London
Millions endure massive travel disruption as unions accuse Transport for London of ‘dangerously exaggerating’ limited services
A strike by London Underground workers has left millions of commuters facing massive disruption and having to endure journeys on gridlocked roads, with most central tube stations closed and crowded rail and bus services elsewhere in the capital.
Transport for London said it was running a limited service on eight of its 11 tube lines on Monday and would open 60% of its stations across the network. But unions accused it of “dangerously exaggerating” the level of service available, leading people to expect to travel and causing overcrowding at stations.
