The man who can taste the Tube map
Most London commuters have a love/hate relationship with the Underground depending on their experience of delays. But for one man, travelling on the Tube has a very particular effect.
Since childhood, James Wannerton from Dollis Hill in north London has had a condition called synaesthesia, which links senses normally experienced separately.
It means that when he reads the names of London Underground stations, each one conjures up a particular, strong taste - from sausage and eggs at Tottenham Court Road to putrid meat at Kilburn.
He has now created a new version of the Underground map which he hopes will help people understand the condition.
