Station bosses closed the gates to stop severe overcrowding
The DLR strike and a person being taken ill on a train were responsible for huge crowds at London Bridge station this morning.
Hundreds of commuters were crammed into the Tube station in what was described by one commuter as a “dangerous shambles”.
Today is the second day of the strike on the DLR over working practices including the use of agency workers.
RMT union workers began striking at 4am yesterday. RMT general secretary Mick Cash said the DLR management had failed to carry out essential risk assessments, putting employees and the public at risk.
