France's Loi Evin, which restricts the display of advertisements for alcoholic drinks, has come under attack from an unlikely source, a case at the European Court of Justice involving Newcastle United Football Club. The north-east England team - locally known as the Magpies - is fighting legal action brought by Bacardi-Martini and Cellier des Dauphins. Bacardi and Cellier claim they lost money when Newcastle's management programmed revolving touchline hoardings to display their advertisements for only 1-2 second intervals.
