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

Gail Jordan, 41, had gone to a supermarket in Merseyside, England, on June 13 with the photo of her son David taken when he was five-months-old.

But the store's staff initially refused to scan the picture on to a cake because it featured nudity.

They eventually put a star over the offending part of the photo which was scanned on to the cake.

The cake was a surprise for David’s 21st birthday on June 18.

Ms Jordan, who lives in Rock Ferry, the Wirral, 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.”
