Following in Ford’s footsteps, Mitsubishi and Vauxhall have also pulled their ads from News Of The World, in response to the tabloid’s phone hacking scandal.

Mitsubishi is going further, in fact: the money it would have otherwise spent on ads is going to British charity Childline, a counseling service for abused children. The two automotive companies join a host of major corporations that have pulled their support of the tabloid after allegations that investigators and editors tapped into the cell phone of a murdered 13-year old girl.

Renault and Suzuki are two manufacturers next on the list; they have not yet made a formal decision to withdraw their ads, but are currently considering it.
