A specially-designed roundel to mark International Women’s Day has been unveiled at Upton Park station.
It is one of five stations across the Tube network to display the roundel, which is in green, purple and white and inspired by the suffragette movement.
The stations were chosen due to their connections with women and transport - Upton Park was where Hannah Dadds, the first female Tube driver, started her career.
Heidi Alexander, deputy mayor for transport, said: 'I'm delighted that we are marking International Women's Day across the Tube network with these special roundels.
'They celebrate the transformative impact that the suffragette movement had on all our lives, and the crucial role women play in keeping our transport network moving every day.'
