Hundreds of brand new toys lost on London's transport network are being wrapped up to bring some seasonal cheer to needy families in the capital this Christmas.
Transport for London's lost property office is donating the mountain of toys that have been left on tubes, trains and taxis to the Salvation Army.
It will then distribute the gifts to disadvantaged families across the capital over the festive period. TFL's lost property office recieves around 50,000 items of lost property every three months.
