Pay row Tube strikes called off


Strikes planned by London Underground drivers over the next few weeks have been called off to allow talks to be held over a pay row.

Members of the Aslef union were to stage 24-hour walkouts a week today and on the following Friday.

The drivers went on strike on Boxing Day in a long-running dispute over bank holiday pay, disrupting Tube services.

A union spokesman said the action had been suspended so that talks could be held to try to reach a resolution.
