Sadiq Khan and Grant Shapps at war over TfL deal to save Tube

The Transport Secretary and Mayor clashed on Wednesday over Transport for London’s multi-billion-pound bailout amid warnings that it will lead to fare rises, cuts to bus services and further damaging strikes.

Writing in the Evening Standard, Sadiq Khan accused the Government of attaching “malicious” conditions to the long-term deal that would see City Hall face another fight with unions over pensions and driverless trains.
