Key Network Rail stations including Victoria, King's Cross, Waterloo, Paddington, Euston, Bank and London Bridge, will have no Underground connections.

The strike was cut from six days after discussions, though Aslef said there could be three further strike days at the end of the month.

A 24-hour strike that threatens to cause chaos on the London Underground is going ahead after talks broke down.

TfL has warned services across all lines will be "severely reduced" on Sunday evening and all day Monday.

General secretary Mick Cash said: 'Despite huge efforts by the union negotiating team, London Underground have failed to come up with any serious plans to tackle the staffing and safety crisis caused by the axing of almost 900 safety-critical station jobs.

The General secretary for the Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) Manuel Cortes stated that talks that have been taken place with the union have proved to no avail till now, and then said that they require hundreds of more staff members to be able to perform their duties so as to assure the operations of the Tube are carried out safely and to assure that the cessation of stations no longer continue to be a regular matter anymore.

"As a result of London Underground's failure to address the issues at the heart of the dispute the talks are adjourned and all action remains on".

Announcing the Northern Rail ballot earlier this week, Mr Cash said Northern staff were being offered "a below the rate for the job pay deal".

London Underground's chief operating officer Steve Griffiths said: "We have always committed to reviewing our new staffing model with our trade unions during its first year, and following the review by London TravelWatch we established a joint working group to undertake that review and make any changes necessary".

TSSA members working in tube stations are now refusing to work overtime as they take action short of strike.

Services will be severely restricted on Monday when the strike goes ahead.

Mr Grayling today told the BBC: 'Ultimately I don't have the power to force unions to stop striking.
