London: A Liberal Democrat MP, who hates Page 3, has been appointed as Equalities Minster.

During her election campaign, Lib Dem Lynne Featherstone, 58, warned that she would "love to take on Page 3", reports The Sun.

Her new job means she has the potential power to force through a ban.

She said: "Will I get our whole agenda agreed? I might - but there are a few things I can see causing ructions."

Few weeks ago she and Labour`s Harriet Harman called for a cross-party coalition to outlaw topless models.

But Page 3 girl Peta Todd said: "If Ms Featherstone wants to take us on, she should know that we won`t go down without a fight.

"It`s pathetic. There are enough problems without wanting to stop our freedom of expression."
