A Sainsbury's worker who was sacked from her job of 28-years after picking up a cuddly toy and saying 'Black Lives Matter' has been awarded compensation.

Marian Cunnington, 52, picked up a 'Bing' toy - from the leading BBC children's cartoon of the same name - while making price changes at the store in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.

While holding it she made the comment 'should we really be selling this toy? Black Lives Matter' in June last year, the tribunal heard.

Price controller Ms Cunnington was suspended that same day and - despite explaining to bosses that she was 'standing up for BLM' - the mother-of-one was fired for gross misconduct on July 2.
