London Underground strike called off


Planned strikes by London Underground drivers and Heathrow airport cargo staff in separate disputes over pay and disciplinary action have both been called off.

The drivers' union Aslef said a walkout by its members on the Tube's Piccadilly line on Thursday would not go ahead after agreement was reached over a disciplinary case.

A three-day strike by cargo workers at Heathrow over pay, due to start at 6.30am tomorrow, has been suspended, said the Unite union.
