ADVERTS ON VIRGIN HOME PAGE

I accept virgin need to put adverts on their homepage but that new massive red one  covering quarter of the homepage has become most annoying. Is there anyway of getting rid of it before it drives me insane?   Robot Mad

Yes. Install uBlock Origin plugin for your browser (better alternative to adBlock Plus). If it's still visible after installing the plugin, then right click on the advert you want to remove, select "block element" in the menu. Follow the directions, e.g. click on 'create' to create a filter. That should be it. Refresh the page to see if it worked.
