On the BBC main page, you can see in this image the two ads which are not blocked.

I can click on it and block it but when I close and reopen safari it is back. I have tried blocking the image and also blocking the entire square as you can see from this filter...

 The class filter and the direct image link both block but then they both stop working. Otherwise everything works perfectly in adblock. This is a complete mystery.

It block OK in FireFox

    Don't report ads directly here. Take a look at the Report an Ad to us! page in the Knowledge Base. This helps us get the report to the right place.
