Never mind the gap: rubber safety device could fill void at train stations
Bespoke fillers designed to prevent passengers slipping between the train and platform could be rolled out after successful trial
The famous gap that train passengers have been told to mind for decades could be in jeopardy, after successful trials of a safety device to fill the gaps on London train platforms.
The rubber devices, appropriately known as gap-fillers, are fixed to the sides of platforms near the doors and have apparently eradicated accidents during a year-long trial.
