London Underground strikes due to start this week have been called, it has been reported.

The planned walk-outs by members of the Aslef union will no longer go ahead, after two rolling days of strikes were initially announced.

The underground strikes were announced alongside walk-outs at 16 major rail operators across April and May.

Two 24 hour strikes by Aslef tube drivers were planned on Monday 8 April and Saturday 4 May.

Union members also refuse to work overtime on certain dates, such as today.

It comes over a year and a half into the national dispute, which began in June 2022 when the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union staged the first set of train strikes.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan previously drummed up £30m of public cash to stop separate RMT tube workers launching a weeks worth of action in January.
