Oh the joys of not having to put up with tube travel. Thinking seriously about my last entry, I really don't miss not travelling on the tube. Particularly when you hear about stories like this:

"Rush hour London Underground passengers were trapped for over an hour this morning when a lift "spiralled out of control" on one of the network's busiest lines.

"Forty-five commuters packed into a lift heading down to the Piccadilly line platform at Russell Square were forced to switch to another lift when the one they were using became stuck at ground level.

"Tube staff herded 35 of the passengers into the second lift but that one also failed on its way down to the platform.

As the Piccadilly Line is my usual line, I'm really pleased to have missed this one. For more, check out today's
