Uh-oh – tube delays are getting worse

Isabelle Aron

Always running late for work? Don't worry, it's not you – it's TfL. New figures show that delays on the tube caused by overcrowding are the highest they've been for five years. From March 2014 to April 2015 there were 237 delays, compared with 153 in 2010. The Victoria line was the worst offender for wasting our precious time with 60 delays last year, followed by the Jubilee line with 48, the Northern line with 32 and the Central line with 29. Waterloo and City had the least delays with only one last year, but with only two stops on the line it hasn't exactly got far to travel. On the plus side, if timekeeping isn't your strong point at least you can always blame the tube.

Want more tube news? The night tube is definitely being delayed.
