A Northampton casino has apologised to a local church after tweeting an image of a semi-naked woman superimposed onto the church's tower.
Aspers Casino mocked up the image of All Saints Church on a computer, ahead of an event on Valentine's Day this Friday. However they had not asked the church for permission, nor told them anything about it.
Father David McConkey told ITV News Anglia that the first he heard of it was when he started getting calls from the press, and that he had found the image distasteful.
Originally it was reported in some local media that the casino had projected the image onto the church. In fact it had not, but had mocked up the image on a computer.
The casino has apologised and has issued a statement to clarify.
Today Father McConkey also got the direct apology that he had been hoping for - an email from the casino saying sorry for any offence that it might have caused.
