Transport for London has welcomed the news from the conciliation service ACAS that the bus strike planned for tomorrow (Thursday, July 5) has been suspended.

New proposals to settle the dispute were published today - prompting tomorrow's strike to be called off.
Talks at ACAS between the bus companies and the Unite leadership will now continue.
TfL's Managing Director Surface Transport, Leon Daniels said: "We welcome the news that the planned strike action on the bus network has now been suspended.
