Andy Lord, TfL Chief Operating Officer, said: “While our focus is always on helping everyone to travel around London whenever they want, the impact of the RMT measures means we have to advise people, only when needed to travel as many train stations are closed.
“Metro alternatives, including the bus and rail networks, are much busier than usual and we expect the severe disruption caused by this strike to continue into the morning of Tuesday 7th June.
“No changes have been proposed on pensions and no one has or will lose their job as a result of the proposals we have laid out. We urge the RMT to work with us to find a solution to this dispute.”
The Joint Council for Qualifications, which represents the eight largest providers of qualifications in the UK, said: “Special considerations apply in cases where a candidate is unable to take their exam due to circumstances beyond their control.
“A grade may be awarded provided the candidate has met the minimum requirement of completing at least one element of the specification.
“This is the same process that is followed in every series of trials. Students should speak to their school or college, which will make a special consideration request.”
A spokesman for easyJet Holidays told The Telegraph on Tuesday: “We are truly sorry for the Richardson families whose holidays have been impacted by the recent flight disruption.
“In a fast-paced situation like this, finding alternative flights to get our customers home as quickly as possible is always our priority. On this occasion, despite being a more remote resort, we failed to look for an alternative as quickly as usual.
“We have booked flights for both families to get home in time for the exam today. We are in touch with the Richardson families to discuss what we would like to do for them following this experience and we will continue to assess how we can continue to improve our response.”
