James Verdon points us to an interesting case at the Advertising Standards Agency. In the face of a complaint from a member of the public, it seems that Frack Free Somerset have withdrawn a scaremongering leaflet they had been distributing to residents.

When you read the original leaflet and particularly the complaint itself, you can see why they didn't argue their case in court.

I wonder if they can be sued for this kind of thing.
