Tube strike next Thursday: Entire London Underground network to grind to a halt as TfL workers demand four-day week

Tube chiefs today warned London’s 4 million commuters that they face “substantial disruption” during a 24-hour strike by Aslef train drivers next Thursday.
Large parts of the network could be brought to a standstill.
Bus services will be “exceptionally busy” and Transport for London advice is to walk where possible.
All Tube lines will be affected by the walkout by Aslef union drivers in a long running dispute over working conditions and time off including a four day week.

Crowd problems will be exacerbated with supporters heading for the England v Slovenia football match at Wembley Stadium that night.
The union has refused to rule out further walkouts. Attempts to try and reach a deal continue.
A spokesman for TfL said: “We are advising customers that the whole Tube network will be substantially disrupted on Thursday 5 October should planned strike action by Aslef members go ahead.
"All other TfL services will be unaffected but many will be busier that usual as customers seek alternative routes.”
Extra buses and Santander Cycle hubs are being provided.
