Commuters battle #londontubestrike as businesses lament losses #LondonUnderground

LONDON (REUTERS) - Millions of commuters struggled to reach work on Tuesday as London Underground train workers staged their second 48-hour strike this year to protest at job cuts and office closures in a dispute that is expected to cost businesses millions of pounds. The walk-out that started at 2030 GMT Monday reduced the Tube network to limited services on nine out of 11 lines with extra buses and river boat services laid on to help the 3 million people who use the service daily get to work. "It's unacceptable that millions of people are having their lives disrupted by today's Tube strike in London," Prime Minister David Cameron said on Twitter. Transport for London (TfL), which runs London's public transport network, said thousands of staff and volunteers turned out on Tuesday to assist commuters, some of whom resorted to running, cycling or walking to get to work.
