    Bee sting advert banned

    A BARCLAYS commercial showing a man suffering a bee sting reaction was banned by telly watchdogs yesterday.

    Nearly 300 people complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about the bank ad.

    It showed the victim fall into a lake then get arrested by cops.

    But the ASA ruled it was offensive to allergy sufferers.

    Barclays apologised, saying the ad was meant to be “light hearted”.
