Lewisham LBC had the last laugh when a mobile phone company ran a radio advertisement at its expense - an apology was read out in the House of Commons.

One to One's ad ran on London's Capital Radio and featured a woman saying: 'I'd like to have a one-to-one with the Mona Lisa. I'd ask her why she's so miserable, things can't be that bad - she should try living in Lewisham.'

Outraged residents rang the press office asking what action it could take and Lewisham West MP Jim Dowd tabled an early day motion to complain.

By midday the firm had apologised in full and had pulled the advert.
