Burberry drops Mario Testino

Burberry has become the first major British fashion brand to drop celebrity photographer Mario Testino over sexual harassment claims. 

The famed photographer has denied the allegations made against him

The London-based firm had worked with the 63-year-old for more than 15 years and last employed him for a perfume advertising shoot in 2016.

It said it had no plans to work with the photographer again for the foreseeable future, after he was accused of making increasingly aggressive sexual advances by 13 male models and ex-assistants.
