Thousands of Tube passengers have endured further delays on the second day of the strike, although Transport for London (TfL) said services are running on most lines.

However, good news for those battling to get to work is that the Unions have said they will take part in talks on Friday aimed at resolving the dispute.

A second 48-hour walkout is due to begin at 9pm on 11 February.

 

RMT leader Bob Crow said: "Our negotiators are geared up and ready to enter the exploratory talks on Friday.

"In the meantime, the current action continues with the rock solid support of our members and we will be back out on the picket lines early in the morning as the strike heads into its third day."

But London Underground managing director Mike Brown asked: "Why wait till Friday?

"I call on the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA to meet us on Thursday and to suspend the strike so we can get on with talks to resolve this issue and avoid any more unnecessary disruption to Londoners."

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has joined the dispute saying there was no "justification for the vast disruption".
