The reported move follows a campaign launched in September 2012 to force the paper into dropping its daily diet of topless pictures. Called No More Page 3, it attracted more than 215,000 signatories to an online petition. The campign was also supported by organisations including the Girl Guides and the Welsh Assembly. More than 30 universities voted to stop selling The Sun until it dropped the feature, and in June 2013 the Green MP Caroline Lucas was told to cover up her No More Page Three t-shirt during a debate in Westminster Hall. The campaign has issued a cautious welcome to the reports. A spokeswoman said: “This could be truly historic news and a great day for people power. We don’t know the details for sure and there’s still lots to be done. But this could be a huge step for challenging media sexism.”
