An apocalyptic morning of failed journeys, late arrivals and cramped conditions greeted millions of London commuters today as the Tube strike began.
We turn to Twitter, the capital’s most popular destination for spleen venting, to find out exactly what went on under and indeed over ground during this morning’s rush hour. #Tubestrike
#TubeStriketoday meant getting the boat to work! It may be slower but it offered much better views than the tube… http://t.co/cLUFMfjqkE

Got to hand it to the London Underground staff who are attempting to operate a normal service today. #tubestrike#tfl

Sure, moan about the inconvenience of #tubestrikebut not at those who’ve chosen to strike. Standing up for themselves against bullying tfl.

Why are so many Londonders so angry about the TFL strike? Seems to me a great excuse to be late for work. #tubestrike#takeyourtime

Not buying @MayorofLondon spin on #tubestrike. Automation & big job cuts is major economic issue, & refusing to meet unions is pathetic.
