London Underground says it is operating train services on nine out of 11 lines despite the strike action called by the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA unions, with some train services up and running before 5.30am this morning.

LU adds that more trains are running to more destinations and more stations are open than yesterday.

This, along with a range of other transport options, is keeping London moving and open for business today.

Yesterday LU ran over a third of services, with 70 per cent of stations open.

Some 86% of regular Oyster customers travelled in London and Barclays Cycle Hire journeys were up by 50%.

Latest Travel advice to customers on Thursday:

The situation may change throughout the day and buses and the transport network will be very busy. TfL is urging all customers to plan ahead and to check before they travel at www.tfl.gov.uk and by following @TfLTravelAlerts, @TfLTrafficNews and @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter.
