A poster containing nationalistic language has been reported on the Central line, with Transport for London (TfL) saying it will remove any similar items spotted “immediately”.

An image of the poster was uploaded onto the social platform Reddit, though has since been removed by the moderators.

The poster, which is headed ‘We are British, we are proud!’ and includes comments on the Falklands and the European Union, was apparently stuck to the inside of a Central line train.

When notified about the issue, a TfL spokesperson said: "This is fly posting - an act of vandalism which we take extremely seriously. We have instructed our contractors to remove any stickers found on our network immediately."

Earlier this year, an “illegal” and “offensive” advertisement of a fake Tube map, in which stations were replaced with crude alternatives, was also removed by TfL.

TfL also removed a series of fake Barbie posters criticising Rishi Sunak, Suella Braverman and Jacob Rees-Mogg over the government’s immigration policy.
