London tube strike causes travel chaos for millions of commuters

Millions of commuters in London faced travel chaos on Wednesday on the first full day of a 48-hour tube strike by London Underground staff over planned job cuts and the closure of ticket offices.


Staff from the two main unions began the first of two planned 48-hour strikes late Tuesday evening and by rush hour on Wednesday commuters faced long waiting times for over-crowded buses and trains as strong winds battered Britain's capital. (Reuters)
