Major disruption across the line from today
Strike by workers on the DLR begins today. Earlier the entire line was expected to stop, however this morning TfL said a limited service is operating between Beckton and Poplar, and Canning Town and London City Airport.
The walkout, over a range of issues including an alleged “comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations,” means DLR trains are being halted from 4am today until 03.59am on Friday, 30 March.
