New Tube Strike Threat

Tube drivers are threatening to leave trains blocking Underground platforms as they claim they are not being checked properly to ensure they are empty.

As part of industrial action on the Bakerloo and Central lines from 10th January, members of the RMT union are refusing to take trains into depots

The union say there have been numerous incidents of passengers being taken on board trains into the secure sidings areas, culminating in the
 case of a young boy attempting to jump from a train onto an area of live track, and where a potential fatality was only avoided through the swift intervention of a driver.

They wants staff set aside to check the trains.

Tube managers say it won't affect services.
