Kent Girl Re-Voices Security Message

10 May 2016, 05:27

A 10-year-old schoolgirl from Kent has re-recorded one of the most repeated railway station safety announcements in a bid to increase security on Britain’s biggest train company.

Railway worker’s daughter Izzy from Kent, now voices the message asking passengers to keep an eye out for unattended items or anyone acting suspiciously on Southern, Thameslink, Great Northern and Gatwick Express.

“Please help ensure my mummy and daddy come home from work today safely,” she says through platform speakers in 236 stations across London, Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

Stella Rogers, Head of Security for the four train routes, which are operated by Govia Thameslink Railway, said: “The UK is in a heightened state of security and it is more important than ever, after the atrocities in Belgium, for passengers to keep a look-out for abandoned bags and suspicious behaviour.

“The announcements we make are so well known they just blend into the background noise of the station and are ignored.

“Izzy’s childish voice imploring passengers to help her mum and dad get home safely will hopefully make people sit up and take notice.”
