    London's walking Tube maps have been extended to help people travelling outside the centre of the capital. 

    The maps, which highlight the walking time and steps between stations, now include Zone 3 and National Rail stations for the first time. 

    They were released at Transport for London's first major walking conference to discuss how to make the city better for pedestrians. 

    TfL's managing director for surface transport, Leon Daniels, said: "We recognise the influence that travel choices have on how healthy people can be in London. 

    "If we do things differently, such as helping to reduce car use by providing nicer places to walk, live and work, we can help deliver amazing health benefits to Londoners. 

    "Our new walking Tube map is designed to help people who want to get more active and try making more of their journey on foot."
