Nursery worker banned from wearing Islamic dress because it is 'tripping hazard'
A Muslim woman has lost her legal battle to wear a style of traditional Islamic dress at a nursery as it was a "tripping hazard" for children and staff.
Tamanna Begum wanted to wear a flowing, head-to-toe jilbab gown to Barley Lane Montessori Day Nursery in Ilford, Essex.
She wore her full-length outfit at her interview, where a manager offered her an apprenticeship but asked if she could wear a slightly shorter jilbab that did not extend over her feet when she joined.
