David Dinsmore, who was appointed new editor of The Sun last week, has announced that Page 3 girls will continue in the newspaper.
Dinsmore insisted that the topless pictures are ‘a good way to sell newspapers’, while comparing it to a new Japanese exhibit: "This stuff at the British Museum is far more explicit and raunchy."
He revealed his plans while speaking on the radio station LBC 97.3 and BBC Radio 5 Live today, adding that only people who ‘don’t read The Sun’ want the page canned.
Campaigners No More Page 3 tweeted their thoughts on the news:
Dear @davedins we have plenty of supporters who don't feel that Page 3 is "safe". Perhaps you'd meet us to discuss their experience
