The Advertising Standards Authority has banned a series of adverts promoting the chance to build a replica model Routemaster from for the Classic Routemaster magazine, after it emerged it would take two years and £1,150 to complete. The advertising watchdog received eight complaints about it being ‘misleading.’ The Whisperer recalls that TfL put out a press release at the time promoting it, but to be fair to TfL, its press office had done the math on how much the total cost would be.
