The Bakerloo, Central, Victoria, and Waterloo & City lines (BCV) and Circle, District, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and East London lines (SSL)are all effected by the strike.
A strike by maintenance workers on London Underground (LU) has stopped all trains on nine lines.

London Underground said trains were being kept in depots during the strike and services might not return to normal until Friday morning.
