LONDON faces another weekend of strike chaos after Tube drivers voted to walk out for the second time in a week.

Complaining that the return of the capital’s night Tube service will destroy their “work / life balance”, drivers on the Central and Victoria line will strike this evening from 7pm until 4.29am on Sunday.

London Underground bosses rejected calls from the RMT to hire dedicated Night Tube drivers to fill in the shifts during discussions this week.

They say the resumption of the Night Tube only means drivers will have to work four night shifts a year making a minimal impact on their work / life balance.

But the RMT Union said it’s “become clear the drive from tube bosses is all about cutting costs regardless of the impact on staff and the services they operate”.

TfL said there was potential for “little or no service” on the Victoria and Central lines for the next three weekends.
