    A mother who wanted to give a birthday cake to her son featuring a photo of him as a baby was forced to have it censored because it showed his bottom.

    Gail Jordan, 41, had gone to Asda in Liscard, Wirral, on 13 June with the photo of her 21-year-old son David taken when he was five months old.

    Staff at the supermarket refused to scan the picture onto a cake as it featured nudity.

    They eventually printed the image onto the icing with a star over the bottom.

    Mrs Jordan, of Rock Ferry, said: "I took the photo of my son to the store in Liscard and they said we can't do that - it's nudity.

    "It was a photo of my son at five-months-old. I could not believe it.

    'Not pornographic'

    "Eventually another member of staff cut a star out and put it on his bottom on the cake.

    "I just wanted a picture on his cake. Staff said it was deemed as pornographic.

    "I don't normally shop there, but it would not stop me going back."

    She added that her son was embarassed by the debacle but liked his cake.

    A spokesman for Asda said: "We did not say it was pornographic. It is policy across the board that we don't do nudity of any sort at any age. It is nothing new.

    "They (the staff) made a couple of suggestions - enlarge it so you take the bottom out of it, make the border different and another suggestion was putting a star on the offending area."
