Tube strike, rail strike, now, signal failure. London is on its knees
It’s fair to say that today, London’s transport system is looking dire.
The Tube strike has shut down the entire Underground network for over 24 hours, and meanwhile a separate 48-hour strike by First Great Western has begun, affecting services to the south west.
If that wasn’t bad enough, major disruption is affecting trains in and out of London Bridge. A signal failure in the area has resulted in hordes of commuters crowding into the station.
Frustrated and compacted commuters vented their anger on Twitter:

This morning a woman asked me how to get to Bank from London Bridge. She’s been working there for five years but always gets the tube.
