New Xmas Tube "tradition"

Looks like last year's
Camden Road graffiti on the London Underground's only shut down on Christmas Day has sparked off some copy cat "artists" this year.

Caledonian Road (above), Old Street, Arsenal, Holloway Road (below) and Angel (& here) all got their dose of graffiti as the taggers sent pretty deliberate messages to the British Transport Police & the Tube, taking advantage of the day's closure.

As ewpb who took some of the pictures said: "They must have packed turkey sandwiches and spent all of Christmas Day doing it."

Last year the clean up operation was very speedy and didn't take the "several weeks" initially predicted. However, with more stations targeted this year you may still see the remains up on your travels.
