Pavarotti lookalike entertains passengers
A Pavarotti lookalike is entertaining train passengers by breaking into song after getting a job as a station guard.
Colin Miller travelled the world as the opera singer's double after Nessun Dorma became the anthem of the Italia 90 World Cup.
But work dried up after the singer died in 2007 and he has landed a job with Virgin Trains at Lichfield Trent Valley station in Staffordshire.
The former greengrocer, known as 'Pav' to colleagues, now sings impromptu choruses of Nessun Dorma to soothe commuters held up by delays.
Some queue up to have their picture taken with the station guard - and others hop off to take a snap before their train leaves.
Mr Miller, 61, said: "I can't sing like Pavarotti - but I give it a good go.
"All the punters love it, they know the railways don't always run on time but people know I will be out there to keep them smiling."
Commuter Polly Thompson, 26, said: "He really makes my morning. It's a good way to start your day."
But Mr Miller, from Burton-upon-Trent, has been banned from singing at his 26-year-old daughter's wedding later this year.
"She prefers Coldplay to opera and it is her special day, so I'm not arguing," he said.
