London Underground services on the Central Line have resumed normal functioning following a strike by drivers which caused disruption to passengers.

For 24 hours, members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union and Aslef walked out. The strike ended at 9pm on Wednesday in a dispute about staff displacement.

A spokesman for Transport for London said: "We apologise for the disruption this unnecessary strike caused yesterday. Services on the Central and Waterloo & City lines are back to normal this morning.

"We've made all reasonable efforts to resolve this dispute through talking through the issues with the unions, and we have minimised the number of employees affected from over 30 to eight. 

"All of these moves are within the long-standing agreements we have made with the unions."
