In his election manifesto, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has vowed to ban gambling advertisements from the tube.

The mayor has pledged that if he is re-elected next month, he will consider removing harmful gambling advertisements from the travelling tubes in London.

According to Gambling Insider, Khan has already banned body-shaming adverts and in 2018 he removed all ads on the Transport for London (TFL) network which showcased foods high in fat, salt and sugar.

The manifesto read: “Given the devastating way gambling addiction can destroy lives and families, I’ll instruct TFL to bring forward plans to extend the ban to harmful gambling advertisements on the network.”
