London public transport to run reduced service due to coronavirus

London's public transport will begin operating a reduced service over the next few days because of the spread of coronavirus, the city's mayor Sadiq Khan said on Tuesday.

"Today is a regular service in Transport for London. Over the course of the next few weekdays we will reduce that to probably a Saturday and a Sunday service, and then we will reduce it again depending on what the demand is," Khan told Sky News.

"What I don’t want to do is turn public transport off which means nurses, doctors, essential workers can't reach their place of work."
