They have been instaled at 10 Tube stations, including Canary Wharf and Bethnal Green, as part of Transport for London’s support of the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal.

Eight buses will also be covered in a poppy livery while Tube and DLR trains, plus Santander Cycle bikes, will bear an image of the flower on the front.

Commuters will hear the voices of celebrities including Shane Richie, Leslie Joseph and Jo Brand asking them to donate, while uniformed members of the armed services will be collecting at 44 stations.

Managing director of London Underground, Mark Wild, said: “This year marks 100 years since the end of World War One and we will never forget the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women. We are committed to supporting the armed forces and their families.”
