Determined: Colin Plastic.

A second strike by London Underground workers set to start on Sunday night is expected to bring chaos to thousands of commuters trying to get to work on Monday morning.

But Isle of Wight businesses are determined it will be "business as usual."

Chairman of the Island's Chamber of Commerce said: "We will not be held to ransom by these leftist agitators and saboteurs.

"The Island's businesses will have an armada of buses and taxis ready to get people to work. There is no reason why the island can't operate as normal on Monday.

"And yes, we will also make sure that all those who manage to get to work will get home too."

A Tube workers' union spokesman, said: "What on earth are you on about? Isle of Wight? Give me a break."
