Britain's best-selling newspaper The Sun has dropped photos of topless women on page three.

Britain's best-selling newspaper The Sun has dropped photos of topless women on page three, the Times has reported. The Times, which like The Sun is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News UK, reported that last Friday's edition of the tabloid would be the last to feature a topless model.  

 Page Three has been a Sun feature for 44 years but has been criticised for being sexist and outdated. "The Sun will still run topless photographs on its page3.com website and the models will continue to act as 'ambassadors' for events and campaigns backed by the newspaper," The Times reported. The Sun's editor David Dinsmore declined to discuss the topic when contacted on Monday, The Times reported, but the topless models have not appeared since last week.    A petition to stop the four-decade-old tradition gathered more than 217,000 signatures and last year Murdoch himself described it as "old fashioned" and asked for feedback on the controversial feature.

The No More Page 3 campaign group welcomed the change, calling it "truly historic news and a great day for people power".
