London Underground staff have gone on strike over pay affecting millions of commuters this morning as they struggle to get into work.

The strike started at 6.30pm Wednesday and is due to last until 9.30pm this evening – stretching into Friday as travel bosses warned that further disruption was expected on Friday morning.

Across London queues and packed crowds have already started forming around bus stops and in busy train stations.

Photographs emerging from Clapham Junction, one of London’s busiest travel hubs, show huge crowds as reports emerge that fares for Uber – a hugely popular taxi app service – have spiked by as much as 300 per cent.

Talks between Transport for London and the Unions broke down over negations over night Tubes – due to come into effect from this September – and pay.
