Tube ban Heelys

London Underground have been carrying out some selective footwear banning, as Balham Tube station have banished the kids' wheel-bottomed trainers from their platforms.

Tube ban Heelys

I can only imagine that Balham has problems with hoardes of kids zooming around. The sign at Balham doesn't explain exactly why they're banned, but Transport for London said they came to the decision after comments from commuters and because more children had used the station during the holidays.

A TfL spokeswoman has remained tight lipped about whether or not the ban would be imposed at other stations.
