  2. Unions wants Tube strike discussions 'without delay'

    TSSA general secretary Manuel Cortes said: "We hope London Underground will resume talks with us without delay so that a resolution to this long-standing dispute can be found."

    "The man who created this mess, Boris Johnson, now gallivants around the world whilst our Tube is no longer as safe as it should be after he butchered over 800 jobs.

    "LU, our new Mayor Sadiq Khan and unions all agree that more jobs are needed to restore a safely-served Tube. 

    "Given this, a resolution should not be beyond our wit." 

  3. More talks urged to resolve Tube strike

    Transport for London urged the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and the Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) to continue discussions to resolve the Tube dispute, which centres around job cuts and ticket office closures.

    London Underground chief operating officer Steve Griffiths said: "I thank customers for the patience they showed during the unnecessary strike, and encourage the unions to continue talking with us to resolve the dispute. 

    "We had always intended to review staffing levels and have had constructive discussions with the unions. 

    "We agree that we need more staff in our stations and have already started to recruit 200 extra staff and this is likely to increase further as we work through the other areas that need to be addressed."

  4. 'I would want the franchise brought back into the public ownership'

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had this to say about the #southernstrike on Radio 4's Today programme.

    Jeremy Corbyn
    Quote Message: The Government seem to be more interested in protecting Southern rail despite its appalling service and shortage of trains, short trains, overcrowding and all that goes with it, and continued allowing them to run the franchise.
    Quote Message: I would want the franchise brought back into the public ownership and public sector because after all we provide the rails, we provide the trains and they make the profits from running them. from Jeremy Corbyn MP Leader, Labour Party

  5. A handful of trains ran from Brighton to London this morning

    Southern says the early morning trains were driven by drivers and managers.

    The company says it plans to operate eight trains in each direction in the morning and during peak hours between Caterham and the capital.

    These trains are driver-only operated. But the company normally operates more than 2,200 trains a day, carrying 300,000 passengers.

  6. New Southern rail strike by drivers gets under way

    The latest strike by Southern train drivers is under way, the first of six day-long stoppages planned in January.

    Train tracks

    Only 16 trains will run, instead of 2,242 timetabled on a normal weekday.

    About 200 bus and coaches will ferry passengers from eight Southern stations to those run by other operators.

    The strike involves about 1,000 train drivers in the Aslef union and "a few" in the RMT union. Southern warned commuters not to attempt to travel unless their journey was "essential".

  7. Duke of Cambridge to visit Centrepoint later

    The Duke of Cambridge will visit a hostel run by the homeless charity Centrepoint today. 

    As royal patron of Centrepoint, William takes a keen interest in its work and, since taking up the post in 2005, has toured a number of its facilities and centres. 

    The charity helps young people who find themselves homeless and during the visit to the centre in London the Duke will meet some of those being supported by the organisation.

  8. 'I'm abandoning going into town'

    The ongoing disruption on Southern rail is having a huge impact on passengers' lives.

    Here's what commuters had to say last night.

    That was the question from Christian Brideson to Southern's Chief Executive Charles Horton and Mick Lynch from the RMT Union.

    Mr Brideson says he used to commute to London but is now too ill to do so. And he believes the strike has contributed to his illness.

    Here's what he had to say at our Southern rail TV debate, which aired last night.
