A ban on junk food advertising across London’s entire public transport network will be introduced next year.

Under the strategy, posters for food and drink high in fat, salt and sugar will vanish from the Underground, Overground, buses and bus shelters.

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

The Advertising Association has said it would have “little impact on the wider societal issues that drive obesity”.

The ban will take effect across the Transport for London( TfL) network on 25 February.
