The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “As the mayor who first opened the Night Overground in 2017, it’s great to see the Night Overground returning this weekend, which will make a huge difference for Londoners.

“Returning just in time for the key festive period, this is another milestone in London’s recovery, linking up diverse and vibrant areas of the city and offering a quick, easy and safe way to get around.”

Rory O’Neill, TfL’s general manager of London Overground, said: “It’s great to see the return of Night Overground helping to make it easier for our customers to get around.

“An extra safe, green and affordable transport option for those working late or enjoying London at night will help all those that need it.”

Despite Overground running smoothly this weekend, strike action on the London Underground will go ahead.

This is the second 24-hour strike action the union has taken.

Night Tube services on the Central and Victoria lines are also set to be disrupted from 8.30pm on Friday to 4.29am on Saturday.

Tfl has advised customers to check before they travel and use buses to complete their journeys where required.
