North Korean officials have paid a visit to a London hair salon to question why it had used their leader Kim Jong-un's picture in a poster offering haircuts.

The poster in M&M Hair Academy in South Ealing featured the words "Bad Hair Day?" below the leader's picture.

Barber Karim Nabbach, whose father runs the salon, told Radio 4's PM programme that he did not realise the North Korean embassy was a 10-minute walk away.
