Nan Goldin ThanksgivingThe collection, owned by Sir Elton John, featured an image of two naked naked young girls, which was seized during an exhibition at the Baltic Gallery in Gateshead on the 20th September.

Elton is reported to have defended the image, entitled Klara and Edda belly-dancing (1998), commenting that "The photograph exists as part of the installation as a whole and has been widely published and exhibited throughout the world."

Police said the circumstances surrounding the photograph are currently being investigated but a conclusion may take some time to reach.
