The entire Bakerloo line will be shut over the coming weekend, Transport for London (TfL) has said, with the London Overground and Elizabeth line also among the services to be affected.

TfL is advising passengers to use alternative tube, London Northwestern Railway and local bus services on April 15 and 16, due the closure of the Bakerloo line across its whole route over both days.
