Tube strike chaos

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

MIL­LIONS of Lon­don­ers strug­gled to work yes­ter­day at the start of a week of travel chaos which saw rail net­works brought to a stand­still by a se­ries of strikes.

Com­muters used cars, boats, bi­cy­cles and heav­ing buses to cope with a 24-hour walk­out by un­der­ground sta­tion staff that left the ma­jor­ity of Tube stops in cen­tral Lon­don closed and no ser­vices op­er­at­ing from main­line sta­tions such as Vic­to­ria, Kings Cross and Water­loo.

Huge queues be­gan build­ing up and many ma­jor roads in the city were grid­locked.

The Tube car­ries up to 4.8 mil­lion pas­sen­gers a day.
