A ban on junk food advertising across London’s entire public transport network has come into force.

Posters for food and drink high in fat, salt and sugar will begin to be removed from the Underground, Overground, buses and bus shelters.
All future bookings are subject to the new policy, Transport for London said.

“We’ve already seen large advertisers confirm they will continue to advertise on the TfL network under the new rules - by advertising their products that are not too high in fat, salt and sugar,” TfL said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he wanted to tackle the “ticking time bomb” of child obesity in the capital.
