Millions of commuters faced a second day of travel chaos on Thursday due to a 48-hour strike by London Underground workers angry over ticket office closures and job cuts, with no sign of an end to the standoff between unions and rail bosses. Staff from the two main rail unions began the first of two planned 48-hour "tube" strikes late on Tuesday, reducing the city's vital Underground network used by three million people daily to a skeleton service.
