A children's colouring book has had to be removed from shops in Belgium, as it contained an image of Adolf Hitler.

In the picture, Hitler is seen making a Nazi salute and wearing a swastika, according to El Pais.

The book arrived at the Kruidvat pharmacy chain in Belgium last Monday (March 27), however it was withdrawn after complaints from parents.

Many parents were made aware of the image when it was posted on social media.

The colouring book features a range of many famous people and was published in India.

A local representative said "we will try to find out how this has happened," according to Belgian media.

Belgian media also reported that the publisher Belgian company Trifora, has said it "regrets what happened." A refund will be available to those who request one.
