Humanists have altered a poster campaign aimed at influencing census responses on religion after being advised they could be offensive.

Posters due to go on buses around the country with the slogan "If you're not religious, for God's sake say so" have been changed to "Not religious? In this year's census, say so," by the British Humanist Association.

The change was made after the Committee of Advertising Practice said the original could cause "serious offence".
