The two strikes by London Underground workers over two days this week have been called off, the union RMT has announced.

Its members were due to strike tomorrow and Friday, shutting down the entire tube network in a long-running dispute over plans to reduce staff numbers by up to 600 posts to save costs.

The union said the strikes had been called off after “significant progress” in talks with London Underground at conciliation service Acas.

Separate Strike action by doctors will impact Kingston Hospital and appointments and operations.

In a social media post Kingston hospital advises: “Due to strike action this week, our services will be busy, but the NHS is still here for people who need care.

“Please attend appointments as planned, unless we have contacted you to let you know otherwise.”

NHS England figures show Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has cancelled 1,268 appointments or operations  as a direct result of strike action by NHS staff.

It means the total number of treatments cancelled grew to 7,281 over the last year.

Strikes have been conducted by various NHS staff members, including consultants, junior doctors, nurses, and ambulance workers.

Another joint strike by consultants and junior doctors is planned for this week.
