LONDON — The Guardian reports that advertisements for junk food will be banned on London Underground, train, tram, and bus services beginning in February under plans announced by Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Advertising will be banned for most sugary drinks, hamburgers, chocolate bars, and salted nuts across the entire Transport for London network, which also includes London Overground, tram services, and bus stops.
Fast-food chains will still be allowed to advertise on the Tube but only if they promote their healthy products. They will not be allowed to simply promote their brand or generic logo, to avoid creating a loophole. For the full story, click here.
