London Tube drivers stage (a short) strike


Upset by the sacking of a member who failed a breath test, and claiming that the machines used do not allow for people suffering from diabetes, London Tube drivers are set to strike.

Famous for their multi-day disputes, this particular walk out will come as a pleasant surprise to many travellers.

From 21:30 on Saturday, 7 March until 03:59 on Sunday, 8 March it has to be one of the shortest strikes in recent years.

Clearly it will impact people going out on Saturday evening but services should be back to normal for the start of service on Sunday.

Good news for many.
