Clapham Common has been taken over by cats. Miaow! But not in the physical fur-ball sense… for the next two weeks, 68 of the tube station’s outdoor advertising panels have been taken over by pictures of our feline friends and the internet is going crazy for it.

On your marks, get set, AD BREAK

With the first week of the Rio 2016 Olympics underway, it’s difficult to escape the hype; with daily coverage in the newspapers, on the radio and across the TV and social channels. The run up to this year’s games was certainly not a smooth ride, as the Zika virus broke out in Brazil and drug
