Vinnie Jones CPR advert cleared

A television advert featuring former Wales football captain Vinnie Jones performing CPR has been cleared by the advertising watchdog, after complaints he was doing it incorrectly. Jones, in the 'hard man' image he often portrays as an actor, is pictured performing "hands-only" CPR.

The Advertising Standards Agency said 20 people complained the advert was harmful and likely to cause unsafe behaviour. The watchdog rejected the complaints, noting it had been prepared in consultation with the UK Resuscitation Council and in line with European Resuscitation Council guidelines.
