Good luck...

Commuters travelling back from work this evening have been advised to complete all Tube journeys by 6pm as London’s 24-hour Tube strike continues.

The walkout, which began at 6pm on Sunday, caused mayhem on Monday morning, with scores of people queuing at bus stops and packed into stations before the sun even came up.

Clapham Junction had to be evacuated due to overcrowding on Monday and many Tube stations shut in central London as thousands of workers went on strike in a dispute over jobs and ticket office closures. 

Transport for London (TfL) has recommended that customers complete Tube journeys by 6pm on Monday as many stations that are currently open are likely to close at 7pm.
