‘Homophobic’ charity seeking legal advise

The Christian group behind a banned bus advert suggesting gay people could be “cured” is seeking legal advice tonight.

Tom Ellis, a solicitor at law firm Aughton Ainsworth, said he had been contacted by Anglican Mainstream with a view to taking legal action against TfL, as the advert had already been cleared by the Committee of Advertising Practice before Mr Johnson stepped in, ITV News reports.
