Only Londoners with the most cash to splash will benefit from the Night Tube.

That is the bold claim of a study by travel app company MapWay which believes the 24 hour timetable across five lines will only help those who can afford an extra £100,000 on mortgage payments.

The Jubilee line - which services Canary Wharf and east London - is one of those due to extend its hours, although the introduction on the fresh service planned for September 12 has been postponed due to industrial action.

The findings of the report, published in the London Evening Standard, showed average house prices in the boroughs the Night Tube will service is £394,000.

This compares to prices around £285,000 in the districts that will miss out - meaning these residents will still have to fork out for taxis should they miss the last train home.

It added more than a quarter of London’s 8.2million population – 2.1million people – live in an area that will not be covered by the night Tube.

Most of the Central, Northern and Piccadilly lines, as well as the full length of the Victoria Line will benefit when the Night Tube begins.
