Inspector Sands

Love hearing this on the underground.

It should fill me, and everyone who knows, with dread, but the Cold War is over and so is the message’s secret purpose.

“Inspector Sands is a code phrase used by public transport authorities in the United Kingdom, including Network Rail and London Underground, to alert staff and other agencies, such as the police, to an emergency or potential emergency such as a fire or bomb scare without alerting the public and creating panic.”
