There will be no service on the Jubilee line on Thursday if a planned strike goes ahead.

Members of the Aslef and RMT unions are set to walk out as part of a dispute relating to a new timetable on the line that is set to boost capacity and train frequency during peak times.

Early morning services on Friday are also likely to be affected.

All other Tube lines will operate as normal on Thursday, and passengers are advised to plan ahead and allow more time to complete journeys.

An additional 70 buses will also be in place on the TfL network to help passengers complete their journeys, while Metropolitan line trains that usually terminate at Baker Street will continue to Willesden Green.

A similar strike that was set to take place on Wednesday, June 6 was suspended the evening before.

Passengers are encouraged to visit or the @TfLTravelAlerts Twitter account for up-to-date travel information/
