Transport chaos as strike hits London Underground

A 48-hour tube strike in London is expected to cause transport chaos after talks broke down between railway unions and management.

The dispute is over plans to cut jobs on London’s underground train network and close ticket offices.

The disruption is due to end Thursday morning, but a further three day- walkout is scheduled from May 5.

Transport for London (TfL) the local government body for most transport in Greater London including the underground, says its plans, including cutting 953 station jobs, can be achieved without compulsory redundancies and with the promise that stations would remain staffed at all times.
