While yesterday’s Tube strike caused transport headaches for many commuters, some Londoners found an unusual way to brighten up fellow passengers before services went off.
Sunday’s “No Trousers Tube Ride”, which began in New York in 2002, saw people all across the Underground network take their trousers off while on trains and waiting on platforms.

The participants set off from Covent Garden at around 3pm, and planned to perform a mannequin challenge as well as cause laughter in the carriages.
They all headed to the pub afterwards.
“The point is to relax and enjoy the humor inherent in people not wearing trousers,” organisers said on Facebook.
“A good rule of thumb is to pretend like you were going to wear trousers, and then just fail to put them on.”
