Commuters whose usual travel has been disrupted this morning have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One user said: "Everyone moving like snails trying to join the a13 London is a disaster without the tubes."

Whilst another said: On Tube Strike days, London’s congestion charge should be increased to at least £150 a day. This would keep London moving and make getting the bus a viable alternative for the day."
