DLR hit by tube strike with trains not stopping at Stratford to Canning Town

PUBLISHED: 07:33 05 February 2014 | UPDATED: 07:34 05 February 2014

Trains on the DLR this morning are not stopping at Stratford, Canning Town and West Ham stations due to the strike on the London Underground.

Staff shortages resulting from the industrial dispute means stations remain closed under health and safety regulations.

Commuters were planning to use the DLR at Stratford interchange with the Jubilee and Central lines have been affected and are having to find alternative ways to work.

Operators on the Fenchurch Street service have laid on extra carriages on c2c trains calling at Upminster and Barking, but trains won’t be stopping at West Ham.
