Bum rap for Spall after complaints

Mike Leigh's Oscar-nominated biopic Mr Turner, which starred Timothy Spall (right) as the painter JMW Turner, has become the UK's most complained about film this year, according to the British Board of Film Classification.

Its report stated that 19 people complained about a scene in the film, where Spall's "clothed buttocks are seen clenching vigorously, before the scene cuts to a close-up of his face and his thrusting head and shoulders".
