An Asian fireman who was taunted by his fellow crewmen has won his case for racial discrimination, reports The Independent (p2).

Warren Mann, 24, complained that his workmates nicknamed him Gunga Din, ignored him, made racist comments and left him in the station to make the tea at Painswick firestation in Gloucestershire. He told a Bristol tribunal that his and his family's confidence was destroyed after three years of abuse.

The tribunal ruled that officers made racist comments in Mr Mann's presence and had shown a 'patronising and insensitive attitude' towards him.
