  5. London's transport taken over by kids for the day

    Redesigned roundel

    If you thought you heard a child's voice speaking over loudspeakers during your morning commute - you weren't hearing things.

    Voices of pupils from London schools are being used for special announcements at a number of Tube stations to celebrate Unicef UK’s World Children’s Day.

    Transport for London (TfL) roundels at stations including Bond Street, Green Park and London Bridge have also been redesigned by children while they have also provided "thoughts of the day" messages on whiteboards.

    Speaking about the day, Interim Executive Director at Unicef UK, Nick Roseveare said "we hope this children’s takeover inspires parents all over the world to let their kids take control for the day – from simply choosing their route to school or deciding what’s for dinner."

    Staynton Brown, TfL's director of Diversity, Inclusion and Talent, said the transport authority was "thrilled to be working with Unicef on this project".
