Cool, pay attention. The rest of you can turn around and go back to whatever it was you were doing, because the fact part of London's Overground service will now running at night doesn't really affect you lot.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the service would "help thousands more who are working through the night or out enjoying our capital's nightlife".

Jonathan Fox, director of TfL's rail and sponsored services, said extending the Night Tube, would "help support thousands of people working in night-time jobs and boost the local and wider economy".

About 300,000 journeys are being made every weekend on London's Night Tube service.

It's anticipated that the move will give East London's nighttime economy a considerable boost, as was the case across London following the launch past year of the night tube.

The former Silverlink Metro service is run by Arriva Rail London on behalf of Transport for London (TfL).

"Our teams in stations and on trains work tirelessly to transform the service for our customers and communities".
