Washington DC’s subway system is to reopen after a day-long shutdown for emergency safety checks.
The aim was to give safety crews time to inspect 600 underground cables that could be a possible fire risk.
During an inspection of the system more then 26 defects requiring replacement or repair were discovered..
However there were many complaints among the 700,000 people who use the system saying they’d been given little warning of the shutdown and had been ill prepared.
