RMT call for halt to job cuts as dangerous overcrowding hits Kings Cross

RMT demands halt and reversal of station staffing job cuts as dangerous overcrowding hits Kings Cross and Victoria this morning.

General secretary Mick Cash said.

"The dangerous and chronic overcrowding on London Underground has worsened this morning with Kings Cross closed and Victoria diverting passengers during the peak.

"This lethal chaos cannot be allowed to continue. The cuts to station staffing must be stopped and reversed and Boris Johnson should get out of his bunker and start taking responsibility for a transport crisis that is happening right here, right now on his watch. "
