New ticket office opening hours are to come into effect from Sunday 6th February despite the ongoing row between Tube bosses and workers over job cuts.

The reduction in hours will affect Turnham Green, Chiswick Park and Stamford Brook stations amongst quite a number of others locally.

London Underground say staff will be deployed to areas of stations where passengers "most value their help and reassurance" and insist the changes are needed to "take into account the success of the Oyster card".

Tube unions claimed that the reduction in hours that ticket offices are manned will turn the underground into a "criminal paradise".

The table below shows details research undertaken by Liberal Democrats into how ticket office closures will affect local tube stations in Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham and Hounslow.
