Posters for the Stansted Express were banned for wrongly implying that the train would take passengers to central London in 35 minutes, a watchdog said today. Posters at Stansted Airport used the text “Train to London 35 minutes” with images of landmarks including Big Ben, the London Eye and Nelson’s Column. One person complained that the ad was misleading as he understood passengers would only get as far as Tottenham Hale in north London in 35 minutes.National Express, which runs the service, said international passengers arriving at the airport made up 58% of the train’s business, with many not speaking or understanding fluent English.

“The train passed fruit farms and clean villages and Swiss cycling in kerchiefs, calendar scenes that you admire for a moment before feeling an urge to move on to a new month” – Paul Theroux
