Seats reserved for wizards, royalty and those who need a bit of warming up are all available on the London Underground, if you look carefully enough.

Cuts have led to reserved seats being taken away. Picture: Stickers on the Central LineCuts have led to reserved seats being taken away. Picture: Stickers on the Central Line

A group calling itself Stickers on the Central Line has been replacing stickers on the Tube with its own slightly altered comical versions.

The new stickers include changing who reserved seats are for and putting light switch stickers under the buttons which open doors on trains.

One reserved seat sticker even says the reserved seat has been taken away due to Transport for London (TfL) cuts.

But not everyone is amused by the pranksters.

A spokesman for British Transport Police told the BBC: “The costs of graffiti are substantial for the railway industry in terms of repairs and clean-up, and can leave permanent scars on the infrastructure.”

The group posts pictures of its work on the Facebook page Stickers on the Underground.

It also encourages people to send their pictures in of any stickers they have spotted.

The group uses the same fonts and colours as the official stickers put on trains and stations by TfL.
