Photo of the day: TfL fights fare-dodgers with Star Wars spoilers

David Clack

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is officially the biggest film release ever, taking enough money in its opening weekend to build another Walkie Talkie, with plenty of change.

The simple fact is, then, that it’s only a matter of time before you find yourself sitting at your local multiplex in full Jedi regalia, with a lightsaber in one hand and a jumbo tub of popcorn in the other. And until this time, you’re at the mercy of inconsiderate blabbermouths spoiling the whole thing by revealing what happens at the end and who shags who.

Harnessing this power in true Sith style, TfL staff on the London Overground are threatening to drop spoilers on anyone travelling without a ticket. It’s a fine plan, if you ask us, although if TfL really means business it could just go the whole hog and force fare-dodgers to sit through 'The Phantom Menace'.
