SUPERMARKET giant Sainsbury's has apologised after staff at a Suffolk store gave youngsters a book featuring suggestive cartoon images.

The book, called How To Change The World For £5, features light-hearted stick drawings of a naked man and woman in various positions.

It was given to primary school children as a gift when they visited a store in Haverhill.

A spokesman for Sainsbury's said the children had been discussing trade with Third World countries and staff thought it would be an appropriate gift as the book had an environmental theme.

He added that staff had not realised the book contained the suggestive cartoons and was aimed at adults.
