Television presenter and former page 3 model Melinda Messenger has issued a statement saying it is a "good decision" to end page 3 in the Sun newspaper.

I personally think it's a good decision to end page 3. It's had a long life but we all have to change for the better. That is what society is all about.

We live in a time now, where we are one click away from seeing thousands of naked images of both men and women.

Our kids have full access to a whole gamut of images, a lot of which are potentially damaging to the development of their sense of self, and I think this is the bigger issue we should be concerned about.
