An ad promoting the expansion of Heathrow Airport has been banned for the "misleading" claim that "those around us are behind us".

The ad claimed 50% of those living around the airport were in favour of expansion and 33% were opposed, according to a survey of 10,000 residents in 10 constituencies taken late last year. However, eight people complained that the claim was misleading and unsubstantiated, and were backed by the Advertising Standards Authority.
