Commuters returning to work in London on Monday after the Platinum Jubilee holiday were met by a subway strike that disrupted journeys and prompted some to take expensive taxi rides or board packed buses.

The Tube’s Victoria, Circle and Waterloo & City lines were closed, with limited services on the Piccadilly, Central, District and Bakerloo routes. The RMT said as many as 4,000 staff would strike, while Transport for London urged people to avoid non-vital travel and said disruption could continue into Tuesday.
