A stash of dirty mags is being kept in Scotland’s National Library, it has been revealed.

The X-rated titles are held on the institution’s shelves but curious readers must ask librarians before perusing the pornos, which are kept in the special collections reading rooms.

The publications include Razzle, Fiesta and Mayfair, and are listed on the library’s website.

Deputy National Librarian Dr Daryl Mead defended their place in the collection.

He said: “The pornographic magazine element is a small part of our overall collection. The library does not act as a censor.”
