Page Three of The Sun campaign splits opinion in Gloucestershire
FORMER glamour model Gina Hawkins has rubbished calls for The Sun's Page Three to be abolished.
Gina, 33, now a bar manager who lives in Longlevens, started modelling when she was 18 and spoke out after the No More Page Three campaign earned nearly 50,000 backers.
She said: "There's nothing wrong with it. The Sun's not meant for children, and it's not as if it's the sort of thing I'd leave lying around for my kids to read. There's probably a lot worse in the news."
But others in the county disagreed and said the page, which features topless women, should go. Cirencester-based author Caroline Pover has been gathering petition signatures.

And Kaytee Parish, an MA student from Quedgeley in Gloucester, said: "In a society where men and women should be looked at as equal, I don't think The Sun has moved with the times."
