– Stuart Beare, organiser of the Tulleys Farm Shocktober Fest event
We do not intend to cause offence to anyone. The image of the zombie girl on our advertising is no worse than many images you´ll see at this time of year in newspapers and magazines, on the Halloween costumes in the supermarket isles and even kids TV programmes.
We are waiting for the Advertising Standards Authority to come back to us with their judgement to see if we have to take the ads off the buses.
Adverts promoting a Halloween attraction near Crawley has been deemed too scary.
The Advertising Standards Authority has received a number of complaints from local residents about the Tulleys Farm Shocktober Fest bus advert and is currently investigating to see if any rules have been broken.
The adverts are on the sides of over 100 buses operating across Sussex and South London including Crawley, Croydon, Kingston upon Thames and Tunbridge Wells.
