UK - Tube strike set to create chaos

A three day strike starts on London’s Underground tonight and is likely to bring chaos for the millions of commuters who use the transport network daily. The strike by maintenance workers over concern of job losses will result in a gradual shut down at 16:30 today [Monday]. TfL [Transport for London] say that only three lines will be affected, the Central, Victoria and Bakerloo lines, however since these links provide vital connections, many commuters will find themselves stranded or suffering long and crowded bus journeys. Many of London’s work force will opt to work from home, wherever possible, but the loss to the capital’s business could run into millions of pounds [BBC].
