It appears Google was training some newbies withs Google Ads and one of the trainees made one of the dummy ads go live for about 45-minutes on December 4 with a blank yellow triangle in the U.S. and Australia.

"As soon as we were made aware of this honest mistake we worked quickly to stop the campaigns running," said Google in a statement.

It added that it would "honour" any payments to publishers which they incurred as a result of the mistake.
