A 48-hour strike by London Underground staff planned for Sunday and Monday will not go ahead, according to reports.

The RMT union suspended the walk-out after "significant progress" in talks with London Underground.

This action would have involved station staff who are members of the RMT and is related to the dispute over London Underground's plans to change how stations are staffed (called Fit for the Future).

Steve Griffiths, London Underground’s Chief Operating Officer, said: "I welcome the RMT’s decision to call off the strike action and end this dispute.  Our station modernisation programme now continues, with our changes meaning a more personal service for customers, and record numbers of staff in public areas visible and available to help customers where they need it most."
