Charity shops bans Fifty Shades of Grey

A Swansea charity shop has stopped accepting copies of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' after becoming swamped with issues.

The Oxfam store had to say "no more" after receiving "literally hundreds" of copies of the saucy books.

Shop worker Phil Broadhurst joked that his store had become a "retirement home" for copies of the popular E.L. James series.

On a Facebook announcement, they said: "We appreciate all the donation - but less Fifty Shades and more Sixties and Seventies vinyl would be good. (sic)"

Phil admitted the social media post was having a big impact.

Speaking to the South Wales Evening Post, he said: "I think it has spread because people like the humour in the appeal - and also there are a lot of people obsessed by 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and by vinyl!"
