Dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.

Is anyone going to admit to shooting a 15 year old topless??
The digital camera is a great invention because it allows us to reminisce. Instantly.

Similarly it makes you wonder why the papers are effectively chasing 'kiddie porn', surely it's too much of a hot potato in this day & age?
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Is there a possibility that whoever took the pictures might be prosecuted. Perhaps the emphasises should be placed on finding said photographer. If it was or wasn't illegal to photograph under age children at the time these photos were taken. It certainly is against the law now to have indecent images of children.

It was not illegal at the time (eg Sam FOX) and possession of such pictures would also not be illegal as they were take before such laws were introduced. (again I doubt anyone has been prosecuted for having an old copy of the Sun!).
But I would suspect that publishing such material would be an issue so they are unlikely to ever see the light of day.

Was Sam Fox 15 when she appeared in the Sun.

No. She was 15 when they were taken and they were published, following advance publicity hype using clothed shots, on the day of her 16th birthday.

Not for taking pictures of the MP, as the legislation didn't change until 2003 and the BBC are suggesting the images were taken around 1987.

That presumes that the images, if they still exist or ever did, are actually indecent.

I notice from the MP's blog that she only stated she posed for topless images when she was a teenager, not when she was a minor, so this might be a rare(?) case of the BBC being a bit cavalier with their facts. Another news source said she "admits posing for the photoshoot when she was just 15 or 16 to raise money to buy clothes."

Playing devil's advocate, might this just be a case of a newspaper trying to establish whether or not the MP may have been attempting to gild the lily in support of the campaign against the Lads Mags and Top Shelf publications which many activists in her party appear to support?

She says She would find it "humiliating" if they were published - and I wouldn't like to see anyone's past rubbed in their face - but they're just pics from years ago, and no shame in whatever she felt she needed to do at the time ( easy for me to say I know ) I just can't see why someone wants to dig for what they no doubt consider to be some 'dirt'

Was it ever legal for girls to pose topless at 16? I ask because I remember seeing a Daily Star girl back in 1979 who at the time was the same age as me 16, posing on a full colour page. If you remember when the Daily Star first started around 1978 every monday there would be a full colour pin up. The remaining week had black and white.
My doctor told me I've only got 6 months to live. Then I told him I couldn't pay him... so he gave me another 6 months.

Wasn't it?
Remember David Hamilton, Jacques Bourboulon, and the nude pics of Eva Ionesco?
