Brooklyn Beckham has been condemned by a domestic violence charity for holding his fiancée Nicola Peltz's throat in a photo shared on Instagram.

IKWRO (Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation) founder Diana Nammi said: "It is disgusting and I think with serious matters no one should allow themselves to make a joke.

"This is very important, an organisation like ours has seen so many women become victims of honour-based violence, domestic violence, forced marriage – and they have been strangled by their own family and they have been killed by husbands, partners or boyfriends.

"So we are talking about real life, even if it's a joke it is disgusting in my opinion. I think it should be banned from Instagram this kind of picture. He is 21 so mature enough to know it is a very serious matter and I think he has to apologise openly and tell people that he made a huge mistake."
