Clapham Common station taken over by cats

A London Underground station has been taken over by cats – with all advertisements replaced with pictures of the furry felines.

Almost 700 people helped the Citizens Advertising Takeover Service (Cats) raise £23,000 to buy the advertising space at Clapham Common station.

The cats will appear on advertising boards for two weeks..

The aim is to provide a “relaxing, fun and light-hearted” space free from commercial adverts, Cats said.
