When one door shuts another door opens!

Image-Mind The GapIf you live in, or have ever visited London, England and have made use of London Underground, you will most probably have heard the "MIND THE GAP" warnings broadcast at some stations.

Now, they are not telling you to beware GAP stores or even the jazz-funkiness of The Gap Band, they are of course warning you about the gap that occurs between platform and train doorways, more specifically platforms that have quite a severe curve to them.

Well, yesterday in the news we were informed that the "Voice of the Tube" (voiceover artist Emma Clarke) has been sacked (fired) for allegedly criticising London Underground, but she explains that she was "wildly misquoted".

But also in the news yesterday was the story that more visitors to London's Tate Modern art gallery have been injured by Doris Salcedo's Shibboleth 2007 installation which features a large (167 metre) crack in the floor.

Is it just me that can see the solution here?
The Tate Modern doesn't want to risk any "where there's blame there's a claim" merchants filing ridiculous injury claims. So it appears they are in need of some sort of warning system.
Well guess who's just become available and is probably the most experienced person you could find at warning the public about gaps?
Sorted. Glad to help.
