The website Secret London posted a story on Thursday, and it's gone viral for a very sweet reason and it has people the world over crying into their Kleenex. For context, on the London underground there's a 'Mind the Gap' message that's repeated throughout the day to keep people safe on the platform, but it's a mystery as to why there's one station (Embankment) that doesn't have the same computer-generated message - but there's actually a very bittersweet reason as to why.

According to Secret London: "It’s long been one of the great mysteries of the Underground: why does the ‘Mind The Gap’ announcement sound so different at Embankment?" Well, consider the mystery resolved because London Reconnections editor John Bull took to Twitter to share a series of tweets to explain why there's a different voice at Embankment station.

Read it and weep (literally)...
