Millions of people have had their travel disrupted on Tuesday as the biggest Tube and rail strike in 30 years went ahead.

Thousands of members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at Network Rail and 13 train operators have walked out in the biggest outbreak of industrial action on the railways for a generation. Just one in five trains were expected to be running, primarily on main lines and only for around 11 hours. It coincides with the fourth network-wide strike this year on the London Underground.

Just after 11.30am, the Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith and City, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Piccadilly, Victoria and Waterloo and City lines were suspended. The Central, District, London Overground and Northern lines were part suspended, while the Elizabeth line was experiencing severe delays, according to the TfL website.

Boris Johnson slammed the “unnecessary aggravation” caused by walk-outs on the Tube and rail network, saying it was making it “more difficult for people to get to work, risking people’s appointments, making it more difficult for kids to sit exams”.

Travel chaos is set to continue on Wednesday, with just 60 per cent of trains running.

This is due to a delay to the start of services as signallers and control room staff are not doing overnight shifts.
