Flickr is saying photo no longer available when it is!?

I have realised recently that loads of my WordPress posts on this blog have mysteriously lost their photos. This is because I have tried to host my blog photos/images on my unlimited Flickr account to reduce the load on my free WordPress account which has a storage limit.

But in my posts instead of photos I am finding the following.

This photo is no longer available
This photo is no longer available

However if you click on where the photo should be, it takes you straight to my Flicker account and displays the image that should be there. So the photo is still available, either Flickr or WordPress are being difficult about the way I am hosting my images for my blog.

I’m now slowly working my way back through my posts replacing links to photos hosted on my Flickr account with replacements that I have uploaded to my WordPress account.

So please bear with me why I undertake this process.
