Halloween event organiser denies ads are 'too scary'

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.

– Stuart Beare, organiser of the Tulleys Farm Shocktober Fest event
