The RMT union is to ballot tube drivers for action short of a strike in a row over safety on London Underground.

Tube managers are trying to push through an “operational effectiveness programme” which the union says includes potentially dangerous changes.

These include allowing drivers to override the mechanism that automatically stops a train if an object is caught in a door.

Bob Crow, general secretary of the RMT, said the changes were being “bulldozed through in the dash for cuts”.
