Tube strike begins today with passengers warned stations will be closed

Sky News says people are being urged to avoid the London Underground today as Tube stations close across the capital due to strike action.

Thousands of members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) are staging a 24-hour walkout because of a dispute over jobs and pensions.

Tube lines across the capital will be affected from the start of service on Monday until 8am on Tuesday, with only some services running, Transport for London (TfL) said.

Many stations will be closed, especially those in central and south London, and those that do open may only be in operation for limited periods.

While the DLR, London Overground and TfL’s trams are not impacted, they are expected to be much busier.
