You asked

I would like information on how many times Angel tube station has been closed this year. It seems to be a regular occurrence and also at short notice. It was closed yesterday with the announcement occurring at Old street station whilst already on the tube. If yu could provide statstics on neigbouring stations too so that I can compare whether this issue applies to other stations or just Angel it would be helpful.
