Alroight guv Walford East gets a boat race lift

To lighten the mood from the power cuts, London's most popular tube station - the fictional Walford East in the BBC soap EastEnders is going to undergo a face lift to make it seem as authentic as possible. This means adding a stack of Metro newspapers to the outside!

According to
Metro itself, London Underground's Natalie Sutton, who visited the set, said: 'Their copies are looking a bit dog-eared now - but Metro is so much part of London's life, they want it in shot.'

Too right Natalie - EastEnders has certainly got it right though with the amount of drunks and undesireables found loitering around the tube. If they could have a few of the actors coming out and moaning about delays or being stuck in tunnels they'd be spot on.
