Tesco apologises after Muslim checkout worker refused to sell customer ham and wine because it was Ramadan
by Nick Fagge
A Muslim cashier at a Tesco store refused to serve a customer buying ham and wine because he said it was Ramadan.
The till operator told Julie Cottle he would not touch the items as they are considered forbidden by Islam and said she should use the self-service tills instead.
When Miss Cottle, 43, from Neasden, north-west London, complained to the manager, he backed the worker's right to refuse to serve her because it was the holy month of Ramadan and he was fasting.
