Glynn Barton, TfL's chief operating officer, said: “Strikes are bad news for everyone and we continue to work with our operator, KeolisAmey Docklands, to try and resolve the matter and avoid disruption to our customers.

"Our advice for our customers is clear; plan ahead, consider alternative routes, check before you travel and allow extra time to complete your journeys."

The RMT and KeolisAmey Docklands were contacted for comment.
