A three-day strike on the London Underground which was due to start at 9pm tonight has been suspended, according to the RMT union.

The dispute over London Underground's plan to close all ticket offices and cut 960 jobs has already seen one strike with another planned over the next 72 hours.

But the RMT's acting general secretary Mick Cash said they had secured "real movement and significant progress".

LU Chief Operating Officer Phil Hufton said he was "pleased Londoners will not have to endure further strike action this week".

LU and the RMT met hours before the walkout was due to start.
