Train passengers across the South East have been welcomed to London St Pancake, usually known as St Pancras, with announcements telling people to 'have a flipping great day.'Passengers have joined in the fun on social media with bosses hoping to bring 'a little humour to a chilly day in February.'

John Till, Head of Information Delivery at Southeastern, said: "Changing the name of London St Pancras has become a bit of an annual tradition and we know a lot of our passengers look out for the ‘St Pancake’ signs.

"If we can bring a smile to people’s faces then it’s worth doing – British humour is quite unique and it’s great to be able to bring everyone in on the joke."
