The launch of a 24-hour Night Tube in the capital has been delayed.

The service was due to launch on September 12.

London Underground workers have gone on strike twice this year over the launch of the service.

The organisation said that that the launch has been deferred by to allow successful conclusion of talks with unions, including agreement on rosters.

London Underground managing director, Nick Brown, said: “Further to the progress made in recent days with the trade unions and the suspension of strike action, we believe we are not far from an agreement that protects the work-life balance of our employees and is affordable, sustainable and fair.  As such, we have decided to defer the introduction of Night Tube to allow more time for those talks to conclude. Our objective is to reach an agreement that ends this dispute and delivers the Night Tube for Londoners this Autumn.”
