The Sun newspaper has refused to confirm or deny reports in The Guardian that it plans to drop topless pictures on Page 3 in favour of scantily-clad women.

The Guardian quoted sources close to the tabloid newspaper saying it has already dropped the controversial feature and now plans to just show women wearing a bra and pants.

In today's issue model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is shown wearing Marks & Spencer underwear.

The Sun has not responded to a request from ITV News for a comment but head of PR at the newspaper, Dylan Sharpe issued a cryptic response to the claims on Twitter when he said Page 3 on Tuesday would be where it always is "between pages 2 and 4".

Campaign group NoMorePage3, which has been pushing for the page to be dropped altogether, also seemed unsure if the reports are true but in tweets welcomed the potential development.
