Metro In Pancras / Pancreas Muddle


Common with all newspapers and media outlets today, the morning Metro has focused heavily on the fact that, two years from now, a 2012 Olympics opening ceremony stuffed with clapped-out Londony tropes will be boring the pants off visiting dignitaries and spectators alike.

The Metro's eight-page pull-out piece (collectable, if such detritus amuses you) contains a section on 'London lowdown', with a few fascinating facts about the infrastructure surrounding the Games. Unfortunately, an all-too familiar typo has crept into the prose: as the photograph above shows, St Pancras station, that masterpiece of Victorian engineering, has been reduced to the status of a holy gland.

Unless, of course, the slip-up was in fact a subtle reference to the infamous Murder on the St Pancreas Express.
