Do not use mobile close by

You can’t travel anywhere on the UK public transport systems without being exposed to warning signs or PA announcements about “unattended bags” etc. You become immune to them after a while. One of my friends was travelling in the North of England a while back and something curious about a particular “unattended bags” warning sign in a railway station near Bolton caught his eye.

He took a picture of it on his camera-phone (just like you do) – but the quality of the image is unfortunately not very good (just like they always are). You can see it below. I have reproduced the words in the warning text – highlighting the red letters in capitals.

UNATTENDED LUGGAGE MAY BE REMOVED WITHOUT WARNING
and may be destroyed. If you see any unattended bags DO NOT touch it but inform any
member of station staff or the Police – DO NOT use a mobile phone close by.
