Talks resume to avoid this week's Tube strike

Talks between transport union bosses and Transport for London resume today, in a bid to avoid further strikes.

Last week’s Tube strikes saw millions of Londoners taking to buses or other modes of transport when the city’s Tube lines ground to a halt.

Today, officials from unions RMT and TSSA will meet London Underground managers to attempt to resolve a row over the closure of tickets offices and loss of 950 jobs.

Another 48-hour strike is planned to start from Tuesday evening if the parties cannot reach an agreement.
