Tube strike set to cause travel misery
Brent set to be hit by commuter chaos
London Underground (LU) chiefs have warned commuters to be prepared for disruption to their journeys as drivers on the Bakerloo and Northern lines begin a 24 hour strike at 9pm tonight.
Normal service is expected on Friday, but the Bakerloo line will only operate between Elephant Castle and Queen’s Park on Saturday.
Further stops may be added if resources allow it, and commuters are advised to check before they travel at www.tfl.gov.uk
London Overground will be operating a full Saturday service between Euston and Watford.
