RBS adverts banned

The banking group, RBS, has been banned from re-showing two TV advertisements in which it claimed that it would "continue to provide banking services wherever we're the last bank in town".

The Advertising Standards Authority concluded that one of the ads, for NatWest, was misleading because in the town of Farsley in West Yorkshire they had closed a Natwest branch when there were no other banks remaining.

The other ad was for RBS and the ASA found that in Bettyhill, Thurso, RBS had closed a branch which was the last in town and replaced it with a stop on its mobile bank route.

The complaints were brought by the Campaign for Community Banking Services.
