Hotline: Advertisng watchdog bans Sainsbury's TV ad

The advertising watchdog has banned a TV ad for Sainsbury's that claimed "right now at Sainsbury's ALL toys are half price", for being misleading as to whether it applied to its online store.

The ad, which ran in October last year and was created by Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, attracted three complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority - one from Tesco and two from members of the public.
