Commuters urged to smile by positive messages on steps

Rush-hour commuters at a Black Country railway station are being urged to smile – thanks to some positive messages on platform steps.

Twelve signs promoting happiness and well-being have been chosen to lift the mood at Dudley Port station.

More than 300 slogans were submitted in a competition run by West Bromwich-based health and well-being charity The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.

The charity also hopes the positive messages may help people who find themselves at the railway station in severe emotional distress.
