London, Dec 16 (ANI): Condoms meant for youngsters concerned about AIDS, were instead distributed by BBC bosses to their staff.

Durex had donated more than 150,000 condoms to the BBCs so-called GI Jonny campaign, which is designed to help raise awareness of safe sex.

The sheaths were supposed to be given at events across the UK, to 16 to 24-year-olds.

Instead the stacks were given out in staff toilets at BBC Television Centre in West London.

An insider said that he was stunned to see a bowl of condoms being given away in BBC toilet.

I walked into a BBC toilet and was shocked to see a huge bowl of condoms being given away, The Sun quoted the source, as saying.

Staff were grabbing handfuls it was most bizarre, the source added.

A BBC spokesman admitted the give-away, saying: A small amount of condoms were given out internally.

This is not the first time the GI Jonny campaign has come under fire.

The campaign started in October and finished last week. (ANI)
