Night-time Overground services have been extended to north London.

All-night weekend services from New Cross Gate in the south currently terminate at Dalston Junction.

However, from 23 February trains will continue to Canonbury and Highbury & Islington stations.

The extension will connect the Night Overground with the Victoria line Night Tube for the first time and "boost" the night-time economy.

Jonathan Fox, Transport for London's director of London rail and sponsored services, said: "The extension of Night Overground to Highbury & Islington will make life easier for thousands more Londoners and visitors, opening up a new late night connection between east and north London and boosting the night-time economy."
