Tube Shutdown: London Underground Workers on Strike

For the first time in 13 years, the London Tube was shut down today, as workers went on strike after the London Underground (LU) and the unions failed to agree to a deal over pay and night-time service.

After a 36 hour total-network shutdown of approximately 20,000 workers, the strike technically ends at the end of today (Thursday). Service tomorrow morning will be significantly reduced.
