Sometimes you come across a news story so perfect you think someone has made it up just to give you a genuine thrill. I felt like that when I read this week about how builders renovating Notting Hill tube station had discovered a secret room behind a sign on the platform, which had lain undiscovered for 50 years.
The room was originally a small passageway leading from the platform to a lift, until the lifts were replaced by escalators. Once the lift became redundant they bricked up both ends.
London Underground haven't decided what to do with the room yet, though it's likely the posters will be removed and taken to their museum near Covent Garden. Personally, I say open out the room, tidy it up a bit and let commuters have a browse as they wait for the next train.
What an absolute shaar.
