Although the sun began to penetrate the fog for the first time in three days on Tuesday morning (November 3), commuters were coming to terms with other dazzling sights.

These included the DLR at a standstill due to strike action (the service is normally impervious to such things and this is its first ever strike) and queues at the Emirates Air Line as passengers looked for a quick way between the Royal Docks and North Greenwich.

The Air Line might have offered limited view, because of the low cloud, but travellers were relishing the chance to experience the river crossing for FREE – the charge dropped for the duration of the strike.

Elsewhere, life wasn’t so much fun for those forced to take buses or attempt to get on the Tube which is crowded at key locations.

Charlotte Wright tweeted: “Lots coming in to Canning Town on buses and getting Jubilee line as journeys affected by #DLRstrike.”

Although many were left baffled by a service that has no drivers and no ticket barriers could actually be stopped by humans. (Passenger assistants are a requirement is the answer.)

Meanwhile, London City Airport continued to advise passengers to contact their airlines before beginning their perilous journey across east London as many flights have been disrupted by fog.

Unlike Monday, river boat services have been in action, helping to alleviate the pressure on other modes of transport.

The only exception on the DLR is a service between Prince Regent and Canning Town to service the huge World Travel Market at Excel Centre.

Blackwall tunnel

TfL says: "Northbound queues are heavy and slow moving along the A2 approaching the tunnel. Tailbacks currently extend towards Danson Interchange. Extra queues on diversion routes and approaches to the A2. Use other routes where possible and expect long delays."
