Cameron attacks betting ads

Cameron attacks betting ads
David Cameron has said he is unhappy with “aggressive” gambling ads during televised football matches.

Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions earlier today, Mr Cameron said: "Anyone who watches a football match, you do see quite aggressive advertisements. Those companies have got to ask themselves whether they are behaving responsibly when they do that".

But one bookmaker told PoliticsHome: "We're unsure what 'aggressive' means. Bookmaker ads are tightly regulated; we're well aware of responsibilities."

On Twitter, Paddy Power defended their ads as “entertaining rather than aggressive”.
