The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has banned a disturbing advert by the Responsible Gambling Trust (RGT) which contained undertones of sexual abuse.

The ad, broadcast in cinemas before screenings of Trainspotting 2 in February of this year, showed a young woman sitting on her bed while an older man sat on a desk in the corner of the room.

The older man says in a "sinister and menacing way": "What is it? What is it? It's just a bit of fun. Hey it's just a bit of fun. It’s just a bit of fun. Remember that rush. The best feeling you've ever had."
