Tube strike chaos
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.
