A normal Tube service is running on all lines after the strike which saw all trains suspended for more than 24 hours.

TfL are now reporting a good service on all lines and have thanked passengers for their patience.

An extra 250 buses were added to London roads to help get Londoners to and from work. Over twice as much traffic as usual was reported around the city.

Up to 50 per cent more passengers used the Overground, which continued to run.

While the Tube lines were closed, Boris Bike hires increased from an average of 35,000 to 73,000 in a day.

The RMT Union has said that they want talks to reconvene to resolve the dispute over the introduction of the Night Tube.
