London tube strike: Rail network brought to a standstill
There have been chaotic scenes across parts of the British capital as millions of commuters attempt to get to and from work during a 24-hour tube strike.
The London tube network carries up to 4.8 million passengers a day.
Commuters packed the pavements and overcrowded buses on Monday after tube staff walked out in protest against job cuts and ticket-office closures.
London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan has called the strike “unnecessary” and appealed to the unions to return to the negotiating table.
