Many stranded as London Tube begins strike series


Commuters rallied out of central London’s Kings Cross station as they were braced for an early morning battle of using the capital’s buses and hire bikes with the first in a series of day-long strikes by London Underground staff.


The strike, in line with over 800 job cuts, began on Monday but didn’t cause much trouble until Tuesday morning’s rush hour.


Residents and guests are taking boats, bikes, and taxis to get around the city with as many as 10,000 Tube workers striking. About 40 percent of the city’s 500 Tube trains are running, with only one line out of service, according to Transport for London.
