In what some consider a tasteless follow-up to the recent bombs in the London transport system, misleading stories are circulating by email of a "new facility" which allegedly would allow mobile phones to operate from the underground tunnels in case of an emergency. This is, of course, not true, as no "leeky feeder" system or similar is currently installed on the system.

Fuller details are now available from BBC website.
