A bandeau made out of a social distancing banner went viral on Twitter last night.

The banners branded by Chiltern Railways, which operates a train line through Wembley Stadium, were being sold through buy-and-sell app Depop at £15-a-piece.

A photograph of the bandeau left comedy Twitter page Depop Drama “lost for words” as the tweet racked up almost 300,000 likes overnight.

Chiltern Railways said: “Whilst we appreciate this new take on railway memorabilia, these items are there to help customers travel with confidence and we would respectfully ask that they are left in place.”

A spokesperson for Depop said the listing was removed: “The item in question has already been removed from the app and the user has admitted it was taken from a Chiltern Railways train.
