In this case it’s no more than a weird distraction (for the few of us that even noticed) and wouldn’t stop you getting a South West train so no real harm done. It's a lesson in the importance of proofing and sign-off procedures perhaps. 

And here’s another lesson, courtesy of 150 fascinating tube facts. Did you know there is only one tube station which doesnt have any letters from the word ‘mackerel’ in it?
