Londoners have expressed their delight as the Night Tube finally launches this evening.

Trains will operate through the night on the Victoria line and parts of the Central line every Friday and Saturday, with the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines following in the autumn.

Boris Johnson had wanted the service to launch last September, but a bitter dispute with the rail unions delayed the project.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: "When I see the enthusiasm from employers in London, investors to London, tourists in London, about the Night Tube, it's surprising it's taken us this long to get it.

"I'm pleased and proud that we're here."
