Date: 05/08/2015

Stations have begun to close for a 24-hour Tube strike, part of an ongoing dispute between unions and London Underground. The entire network is expected to shut down by 21:30 BST, with all four Tube unions taking part. Transport for London said extra buses were being provided during the strike, which will continue on Thursday. Unions are unhappy at conditions offered to drivers working on the new night Tube service.
