The voice of the iconic 'Mind the Gap' London Underground announcement has sadly died of cancer.
The former 62-year-old BBC presenter, Phil Sayer is known to London's many commuters as the Tube's public service announcer.
Sadly, his family announced that he died on Thursday (April 14) after a battle with cancer.
Mr Sayer's wife Elinor posted a message on the Facebook page of the voice-over artist company the pair set up together.
She wrote: "Phil Sayer - voice of reason, radio, and railways. A dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
We are sorry to announce that this service terminates here."
Mr Sayer presented a daily show on the BBC's Manchester station in the 1980s and also read the regional TV news.
The 'Mind the Gap’ announcement was introduced in 1968 after it had become impractical for drivers and station attendants to warn passengers.
London Underground chose digital recording, but because data storage capacity was expensive the phrase had to be short. A shorter warning was also easier to paint on the edge of the platforms.
Mark Evers, Director of Customer Strategy at London Underground, said: “We were saddened to hear of the passing of Phil Sayer.
"His voice is familiar to millions of London Underground passengers as the man who advises our customers to mind the gap. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
