London Underground might be running as normal after a planned Tube strike was averted but commuters still faced disruption on Tuesday after a signal failure blighted the Jubilee Line.

Services were suspended between Canary Wharf and Stratford due to a signal failure in the Stratford area causing severe delays to the rest of the line. Docklands Light Railway (DLR) services were busier as a result and deep queues formed at other stations connecting to the Jubilee line during the peak rush hour.

As a result of overcrowding, there was no service between Shadwell and Bank and on the London Overground there were minor delays between Highbury & Islington and Surrey Quays to prevent overcrowding. The Victoria line between Seven Sisters and Walthamstow Central remains out of service until 30 August.

As a result London Underground tickets were accepted on the DLR, South Eastern Trains, TFL Rail, Thameslink, London Overground, C2C and local buses.

The congestion comes one day after Unite and the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) and the Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) agreed at last-ditch talks to postpone planned industrial action on the London Underground on Tuesday and Thursday.

Workers were due to take industrial action on 25 and 27 August over the new Night Tube service set to be rolled out across the capital on 12 September.
