Stations closed as Redbridge commuters battle into work
GANTS Hill and Wanstead tube stations are closed this morning as a third strike in two months leaves commuters battling to get into work.
About 11,000 members of the RMT and TSSA unions are taking industrial action, with maintenance workers walking out at 7pm last night and operational staff striking from 9pm yesterday.
The Central line is suspended between White City and Marble March, with a special service running to get commuters to their destinations.
There are part suspensions on almost every other Tube line this morning, with the Circle line suspended in full.
This is the third of four planned strikes by union members, with the final one of 2010 planned to start on November 28.
