At least four major US firms have pulled millions of dollars in advertising from Google’s platform amid rows over extremist content.

The Times reported that telecoms firms AT&T and Verizon, as well as car rental company Enterprise and pharmaceutical giant GSK, have withdrawn all non-search advertising.

An investigation by the newspaper found major brands were appearing next to YouTube videos promoting extremist views - generating revenues for the creators.

The company has apologized and promised better tools for advertisers.
