All advertisements on the Transport for London (TfL) estate, including those displayed on digital roadside screens, are assessed to ensure they comply with the TfL Advertising Policy. The policy requires advertisements to be suitable for all audiences. I extended the policy further in June 2016 to ban advertisements that could pressurise people to conform to unhealthy or unrealistic body images.

If local residents have concerns regarding the suitability of any specific advertisement they should contact TfL directly by calling 0343 222 1234 or visiting https://tfl.gov.uk/help-and-contact/
