Overground trains suspended on morning of Tube strike
Two lines down due to signalling failure and faulty train.
SOME Overground train lines have been part suspended leaving commuters struggling to get to work on the morning of strike action on the Tube.
London Overground trains between between South Tottenham and Barking have been suspended due to faulty trains and between Clapham Junction and Kensington Olympia due to signalling problems.
Sever delays have also been reported on the lines as commuters struggle to get to work.
So far the tube strike does not appear to be as bad as first thought with around 75 per cent of stations said to be open.

Planned roadworks are being delayed or curtailed where possible to keep road traffic flowing around key transport hubs.
Volunteers will be positioned at Tube, bus, and rail stations to assist Londoners with their journeys and provide maps and other information.
