I just got a call from Bev Jackson of LGB Alliance who said that a close friend of Magdalen Berns was insulted when they asked me to take down a photograph of her, and I didn't. I'm sorry, I would have addressed this far sooner had I known there was bad feeling.

I didn't actually realise that was the request, Magdalen's friend asked me not to use the photo again but I didn't know she wanted me to take down the one that was up already. I'm locked out of my account and waiting for Twitter to get back to me about my appeal, but as soon as I'm able I'll delete the tweet.

I meant no insult. It's an incredible photograph. I won't include it here but you know the one.
