METROPOLITAN line Tube trains will now stop at one of the borough stations after an MP's campaign.
Despite the Jubilee line being out of action every weekend for engineering works - and with more than �500,000 spent on upgrades at Willesden Green - Transport for London (TfL) refused to ease disruption by stopping Metropolitan line trains at the station.
But Brent East MP Sarah Teather took her fight for a seven-day Tube service to City Hall and was promised trains will be made to stop at Willesden Green.
She said: "With passengers shelling out for a seven-day service, and Mayor Boris Johnson recently announcing further inflation busting fare hikes, it is grossly unfair those who live in Willesden Green and Neasden should be stranded every weekend."

MP Sarah said there was a huge support for her seven-day service campaign.
She added: "Transport for London should not be charging passengers for a seven-day Tube service if they are not capable of providing it."
