London Underground passengers warned of 24-hour Tube strike

Passengers are being warned of a 24-hour Tube strike from 21:00 GMT.

Rail and Maritime Transport (RMT) union members are walking out in a row about staffing involving Tube drivers.

Transport for London warned that Central, Waterloo and City lines would be affected and other lines were expected to be busier as a result.

Meanwhile, Southern Railway conductors are also set to walk out from Wednesday in a long-running dispute about the role of train guards.
