Sun Editor: Page 3 will stay 'as it's a good way to sell papers'

The new editor of The Sun has said that Page 3 is will remain in the paper.

David Dinsmore has come under increasing pressure recently from campaigners to stop printing topless pictures in the newspaper.

Speaking on LBC he said that a new exhibition at the British Museum was "far more explicit."

Mr Dinsmore said: "This is Japanese art - Spring Pictures as it's euphemistically called. It's given the editor of the Times the opportunity to put a naked Japanese lady on page 3, which as we know is a good way of selling newspapers."

When challenged on whether page 3 is safe he added: "It is, it is, yes I can tell you that.

"This stuff at the British Museum is far more explicit and raunchy."
