Messages of thanks to the NHS have started appearing on departure boards across railway stations in Kent.
The messages are part of a coordinated campaign by Southeastern to salute the nation's key workers today.
The travel company's #ThankYou campaign, which was launched last week, will see personalised messages displayed throughout the day.
They will appear on every Southeastern station in the county, as well as in London and across East Sussex- to a total of 173 stations outside of the capital.
The messages are already gaining a large amount of attention, with positive reactions coming both from train platforms and social media.
Southeastern managing director David Statham said: “Throughout this difficult time it has been incredibly important to us as a company to find ways to show thanks and give back to the NHS workers and carers.
“With the majority of the country having been in lockdown at home for the past six weeks, we saw the opportunity to use our connection to the key workers to enable the public to share the messages they want to express.
“Whether we know them personally or not, we all want to be able to say a heartfelt "thank you" for all the NHS workers have done to keep us safe.
"I am incredibly proud that we at Southeastern are able to provide the public with that opportunity.”
