BBC orders auction house to remove neo-classical goddess painting 'in case nipple offends viewers'

BBC bosses ordered an auction house to remove a neo-classical oil painting of a semi-naked woman in case her exposed nipple offended viewers.

Auctioneer Alan Aldridge was being filmed for Flog it!, BBC2's daytime antique programme, when the production team asked him to take down the 19th-century oil painting.

It features the mythical Greek goddess Ariadne holding a goblet of wine with her left breast exposed.
