London Underground bosses have contacted the conciliation service to help arrange fresh talks over the Tube pay dispute which closed down the network yesterday, causing travel misery for millions.

Acas was asked to assist to get the two sides back around the negotiating table to avoid a repeat of the 24-hour strike which ends this evening.

Tube stations were closed and other forms of transport were packed, even though Transport for London put on 200 extra buses.

Twice as many people as usual hired bikes and many commuters walked to work in bright sunshine.
