Pictures have emerged on social media on Monday showing packed Tubes across London and Unions are threatening to close the entire network.Militant unions will paralyse London as they say this is their solution in solving packed and overcrowded trains, as they refuse to put more trains across the Tube network.

On Sunday evening after the Prime Minister’s very vague message to Brits to return to work, the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) told their members not to work if they feel unsafe.There are many disturbing photos showing people sitting next to each other on packed Tube trains, and very few are wearing face masks.
The government have advised people to “wear a face covering in enclosed spaces” where “social distancing is not possible.”

There is outrage as there is a lack of safety measures on the Tubes, with no social distancing in place, leaving many commuters “nervous” and “concerned” for their safety.
A commuter took to Twitter and said, “Oh my word. Train is packed with construction workers and NOBODY is wearing a mask and NO social distancing as if theres no danger.”
