    This Is How Dirty The Seats Are On The London Underground

    You probably won't mind giving up your seat on the tube after seeing this.

    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
