Newbury Park Station: One of those affected by the strike


COMMUTERS face more travel headaches on their way home, with much of the borough’s Tube line out of action due to a 24-hour strike.

The Central line is still closed between Leytonstone and Epping and between Leytonstone and Hainault.

A “special service” is running on other parts of the line.

Gants Hill and Wanstead stations remain closed but other stations are listed as open.

RMT and TSSA union members downed tools at 6.30am this morning, over a row about plans to close ticket offices.

Tube bosses have warned that disruption could continue even after the strike officially ends at 6.30pm.
