Claim The Sun has dropped page three topless pin-ups

By Neil Lancefield

Campaigners against The Sun's page three topless pin-ups are hopeful that they have finally persuaded the tabloid to drop the feature.

The newspaper has not published a picture of a bare-chested model on page three since Friday.

The Guardian reported that it had spoken to "a series of insiders" who said the feature has been dropped. The dropping of page three topless pictures has been falsely rumoured in the past.

The No More Page 3 protest group wrote a message on its Facebook page which read: "Wow.. we're hearing The Sun may have dropped Page 3. This could be truly historic news and a great day for people power.

"We don't know the details for sure and there's still lots to be done. But this could be a huge step for challenging media sexism. And we are so incredibly grateful to all of you who stood up and said No More Page 3."
