Lib Dems back no Sun Page 3 until after 9 pm

Delegates at the Liberal Democrats have backed a plan to stop selling the Sun before 9pm because of its topless Page 3 pics.

Ex-MP Evan Harris said rules for pre-watershed TV should also apply to Page 3 pictures and a new media regulator could enforce it.

The Sun hit back this morning by adding to its story: "A Sun fan tweeted: 'UK full of problems, and Lib Dems vote to ban Page 3. Sheesh!' "

  • The Sun published a picture of a group Page 3 girls at the time of the last election (top) and claimed: "SIXTEEN Page 3 Girls in all their glory represent the very image of freedom in this country. But if Labour or the Lib Dems win the election, this could be the last time they are allowed to pose together. MPs Harriet Harman and Lynne Featherstone will move swiftly to change the law and ban Page 3 forever."
