London tube strike: Commuters face 'severe disruption'

29 April 2014 Last updated at 15:41 BST

Millions of commuters struggled into London on Tuesday morning as a tube strike brought parts of the network to a standstill.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) walked out over plans to close all ticket offices, at a cost of 960 jobs.

London Underground claims more staff turned up for work than during the last strike, but the RMT says the industrial action is "solidly supported".

The strike started at 21:00 BST on Monday and will end at 20:59 on Wednesday.
