Major signal failure unleashes Monday tube chaos.

A major signal failure at Edgware Road has unleashed total chaos on tube services across four lines this morning - District, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City - with a knock on effect across the rest of the network.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
 
"It is a nightmare Monday for hundreds of thousands of commuters this morning due to yet another signal breakdown with our members reporting total chaos and severe overcrowding on the lines still running. 
 
"RMT has warned repeatedly about the impact of cuts to maintenance and staffing and those warnings have been rubbished and ignored by tube bosses working to a political agenda handed down by the Mayor. 
 
"The complacency and ignorance of Boris Johnson has left London and the tube network leaderless this morning while chaos reigns and he is off pursuing his own political career. It is disgraceful. "
 
Ends.
