`Too explicit' paintings go.

TWO drawings were removed from a North Wales exhibition yesterday after museum bosses said they were too explicit.

The pictures were part of a display by Barmouth artist Charlotte Rowley called Guardian Angels and Bestiality.

The exhibition opened at Llandudno Museum on Saturday but when shocked trustees visited on Tuesday they demanded two of the pictures were taken down.

Chairman of trustees Philip Evans said: ``They were not suitable for a museum and were likely to cause offence to members of the public.''

Although only two people complained about the pictures, which included images of genitalia, the trustees thought they may cause offence to visitors, especially families with young children. The exhibition runs until July 12.
