Some of the borough’s busiest bus routes have no service this afternoon, leaving commuters facing a long journey home.

Drivers across London are involved in a 24 hour strike over pay inequality, with Transport for London estimating a third of buses that usually operate are currently running.

Route 5, between Canning Town and Romford, has no service, as does the 101 from Wanstead to Gallions Reach.

Commuters who usually board a bus at Stratford cannot get the 104 to Manor Park, the 238 to Barking, the 241 to Prince Regent and the 473 to North Woolwich.

The 366 from Beckton to Redbridge and the 323 from Canning Town to Mile End are also not running.

Routes running a reduced service include the 69 from Canning Town to Walthamstow and the 115 from East Ham to Aldgate.

A limited service is in operation on the 97 from Stratford to Chingford, the 147 from Prince Regent to Ilford and the 158 from Stratford to Chingford Mount.
