#BeLikePip: meet Tube worker who sparked social media frenzy

The "selfless" attitude of a London Underground worker has sparked a social media frenzy after he was pictured getting a seat for a pregnant woman.

Pip Lawrence's actions made it onto a parenting website after a mother said she was inspired by the realisation that he must have assisted thousands of people over the years with their "hellish commute".

The post on Mummy's Gin Fund has seen hundreds of mothers on social media praise the "selfless attitude" of the "legendary" Tube employee - with many recounting their own dealings with him.

It has also sparked the hashtag #BeLikePip on Twitter.
