Tourist pamphlet spoilt by nose picking girl


A council’s attempt to promote a tourist attraction has been undermined by an unfortunate picture, say critics.

A leaflet extolling the elysian beauties of Thornham Walks – a 12-mile footpath network in Suffolk – has a picture of a young girl picking her nose.

Andrew Stringer, a Green councillor, says that “it does not represent our youth in the best light” and wants the “amateurish” pamphlet to be withdrawn.

A Mid Suffolk District Council spokesman admitted: “It’s not the best photograph”, but added: “They wanted a real picture, not a typical staged one.

“It’s a real picture and shows children in their Easter outfits.”
