Consumer campaigner Martin Lewis (pictured) has dropped his legal action against Facebook over a series of ads that ran on its platform, falsely claiming he backed several investment schemes.

The MoneySavingExpert website founder had claimed the fake endorsements had caused him reputational damage.

He said he had agreed to drop the case after Facebook agreed to introduce a scam ads reporting button.

In addition, Facebook will donate £3m to a new Citizens Advice project.
