What a good news to wake up to! Londoners were today treated to free travel across the capital as Oyster card readers suffered a technical fault.
Barriers were left open at stations around London and buses remained free to use due to the problems this morning.
A Transport for London spokeswoman said: "We are experiencing technical issues with our Oyster Card readers this morning. We are working extremely hard with our contractors to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
"In the meantime, customers can continue to travel across the Tube, bus and rail networks. We apologise for this disruption. Contactless bank cards could still be used to pay for journeys"
