Tube passengers face disruption on Monday morning despite a last-minute suspension of this week's strike after talks between TfL and the RMT.

Transport for London (TfL) warned passengers to expect delays this morning even after the suspension of Tube strikes. As of 7.30am, passengers were facing delays on the Bakerloo, Central and Piccadilly lines, as well as on the Elizabeth line and London Overground.

The RMT union announced on Sunday afternoon (January 7) that the strikes had been averted after progress was made in talks with TfL.

Piccadilly line part suspended

On the Piccadilly line there was no service between Hyde Park Corner and Hammersmith due to a fire alert at Gloucester Road. There were severe delays Between Cockfoster and Hyde Park Corner. Minor delays were reported between Acton Town and Heathrow Airport due to a points failure at Northfields.
