LONDON - If you've ever traveled on the London Underground, you've heard the "Mind the Gap" recording that warns passengers to be careful as they get on and off the trains. But a recent change caused some distress for a widow.
For years the version of the "Mind the Gap" announcement made by actor Oswald Lawrence more than 40 years ago played at the Embankment Station.
Margaret McCollum would visit the station to hear her late husband's voice. Then one day in November, it was a new voice.
"It was a great comfort and I just loved it and it was wonderful and was really devastated when I heard the new voice for the second time and I realized that something had happened," McCollum said.
The director of the London Underground and his staff were so moved by McCollum's story that they dug up the recording and gave her a copy.
They're also working to restore Oswald Lawrence's version of the announcement at the station.
