A normal service is operating. Some stations where there is an interchange with London Underground may be affected.

The strike began on Monday evening after talks between Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union & London Underground (LU) failed after only two hours and both parties left the conciliatory service Acas.

The union say the strike is necessary to prevent ticket office closures which they believe compromise safety.
