New ticket office opening hours are to come into effect from Sunday February 6 despite the ongoing row between Tube bosses and workers over job cuts.

The reduction in hours means that across Hammersmith and Fulham, a total of 539 hours will be lost, with Hammersmith, Ravenscourt Park, Parsons Green, Putney Bridge and Goldhawk Road among the worst affected.

London Underground say staff will be deployed to areas of stations where passengers "most value their help and reassurance" and insist the changes are needed to "take into account the success of the Oyster card".

Tube unions claimed that the reduction in hours that ticket offices are manned will turn the underground into a "criminal paradise".

The table below shows details research undertaken by Liberal Democrats into how ticket office closures will affect local tube stations in Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow.
