It’s been a long time coming. And it’s still not come. But recent commuters have started spotting a little owl making appearances on the London Underground, which might just mean that the 24 hr tube service that was promised to us in September, is finally, finally becoming a reality.
After months of tube striking and disagreements between unions and TFL over the summer, the 24 hour tube service, initially intended to commence from September 12, was suspended – and no one was that surprised. Because it wouldn’t be London without a few delays would it?
It’s all gone a bit hush-hush since then, with a few rumours circulating that the night tubes might not launch until March. But the introduction of these little feathered friends to a few stations in London have given us fresh hope that we may be rockin round the clock sooner than expected… Watch this space.
And as usual, Londoners have been having an absolute hoot on Twitter…
