They were a colourful confirmation of the fact the Olympics had well and truly arrived in London.
But by the end of next month, the eye-catching magenta London 2012 themed insignia will be completely removed from the underground network.

She said: “As you can imagine there are a lot of them but they are coming down as we speak.
“It took about six weeks to put up. As suspected – it will take a little while longer to remove the signs inside the Tube carriages.”
