Clapham Junction station has been evacuated this morning due to overcrowding related to today's Tube strike.

Southern Rail and SouthWest Trains services are not calling at the station,

Commuters tweeted pictures of the crowds at the south London station this morning.

Tube workers are staging a 24 hour walkout, which started yesterday evening, in protest over safety standards on London Underground.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said this morning that he wants to reduce the number of strike days to zero.

"The reality is today's strikes have caused misery to millions of Londoners," he said on Sky News. Khan added that he views the industrial action as unnecessary and called on the unions to re-enter talks.
