Commuters are dealing with long queues and
delays as they try navigating London during a strike
that has shut down the whole Tube network.
About 250 extra buses have been laid on but there
are reports of 200 miles of tailbacks as commuters
switch to cars.
The 24-hour strike by four unions began on
Wednesday evening and there will be no Tube service
Unions are unhappy at conditions offered to drivers
on a new Night Tube service due to start next month.

impact on commuters was very fair." (BBC)
