An angry commuter took to a street to block a bus in protest because it failed to stop for passengers affected by the rail strike.

Video shows a large number of people waiting at an unidentified bus stop in London for the 123 bus to Lordship Lane/Downhills Way.

But after the bus failed to stop, one man couldn’t take it anymore and was seen waving his arms around and yelling at the bus driver in a foreign language.

The bus in question was full of passengers, which explains why he couldn’t pick anyone up from the bus stop.

Other people in the video saw the funny side of it all and could hear laughter in the background at the angry man’s expense.

David posted the video on Twitter and captioned it with: “Waiting for a bus since 6.30am but the buses are still passing without stopping. And my patients and colleagues are still waiting for me because of the #RailStrikes.

“And we can’t go on strike.

“And my salary is totally worse than those who are on strike.

“The country needs a change”

Traffic on the main street was either standing still or moving very slowly at the time – as people across the capital took to the streets in response to the recent rail strikes.

A live street map from this morning showed how congested London’s roads are compared to normal as most of the Tube has also come to a standstill.

While traffic eased after the morning rush, roads in city centers and on the outer London sections of the M1, A4 and A40 were still heavier than normal.

Around 40,000 members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union voted to leave in a bitter dispute over wages, jobs and working conditions.

Final talks failed to resolve the dispute, with all sides blaming each other for the lack of progress.

This means that today only a fifth of all trains are running, half of the lines are closed and the network is switched off at 6.30 p.m.

Much of Britain will have no passenger trains at all, including most of Scotland and Wales, all of Cornwall and Dorset, and places like Chester, Hull, Lincoln and Worcester.
