Inspired by this video from January 2012 showing the amount of dust that accumulates on a bus seat, Time Out magazine decided to conduct the same experiment on the London underground.

Armed with a plastic mallet, staff headed out on to each of the tube lines to show how dirty the carriages really are.

The results are below:

Bakerloo line / Via

Northern line / Via

Victoria line / Via

Piccadilly line / Via

Hammersmith & City/Metropolitan lines / Via

District and Circle lines / Via

Central line / Via

Jubilee line / Via
