Here’s today’s roundup of the top Underground news, with articles on tube shopping collection, house prices and the German football team

Commuters will soon be able to pick up their groceries from tube stations as part of new plans between Asda and TfL. The 6 tube stations are East Finchley, Harrow and Wealdstone, High Barnet, Highgate, Stanmore and Epping, and there are plans to open 1,000 more click-and-collect points to open over the next five years.

Ed Miliband, Jay-Z and have all been seen cruising the tubes. Yesterday, before England lost to Germany at Wembley, the team were spotted taking the Bakerloo line. (Time Out)
