It's Official - I Have Become Mary Whitehouse!
Thank you for your email complaining about the tobogganing video on the News website.
I have looked at the video in question and think there is an inappropriate image within in. We are re-editing the video to remove that image. We are also re-writing the story headline.
We cover a wide range of content in video on the BBC News website. Some of it is light-hearted. A great deal is serious. We try to strike a balance between the two but accept that we will not please everyone, all the time.
I’m sorry if you found this video offensive.

So Why Do They Call It The News?
Stories not featured on the BBC site today include Republican Scott Brown voting with the US Democrats on jobs, the decision not to investigate the authors of the notorious US waterboard memo and right here in the UK the country's biggest union (I think) Unison has voted to back calls for a 'Nordic Law' on prostitution.
And honestly the BBC is one of the better ones. What happened to journalists reporting stuff that mattered?
