Strikes by London Underground staff, set to start on Tuesday, have been suspended at the last minute.

The 24 hour walkout, which is protesting against the night tube, was supposed to be held overnight on Tuesday, and also on February 15 and 17.

Two out of the three unions – the Transport Salaried Staffs Association and Aslef – pulled out yesterday after progress was made at talks this week.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union, the third union striking, will make a decision on Monday.

Tube workers had said they were concerned about the number of back-to-back and weekend shifts they will have to do.

London Underground have argued extra staff have been hired and the pay deal is fair.
