Many YouTube channels pushing anti-vaccination conspiracy theories will no longer get money from adverts.

YouTube has now stopped serving ads to lots of popular channels that promote such views.

The video-sharing site said it took the step because many of the anti-vaccine channels were promoting “harmful or dangerous ” views.

“Any misinformation on medical topics is especially concerning,” it said in a statement.

It took the step following protests from firms who discovered their adverts were running alongside the controversial videos.

The World Health Organization said anti-vaccine views were a “top 10 global health threat” in 2019.
