Dinner lady sacked for serving Muslim children with non-halal meat at multi-faith school
By SARA MALM
A dinner lady has been sacked for accidentally serving non-halal meat to Muslim students at a multi-faith school.
The incident outraged parents at the 'halal-only' Moseley School in Birmingham, and they have forced the headmaster to apologise for 'insulting' their faith.
The member of staff has been dismissed after the 'unintentional error' on December 12 last year recently came to light.
All 1,400 students at Moseley school are served halal meat, regardless of their religion.
It has not been specified what type of meat was served, but the person responsible for serving the food was dismissed following a disciplinary hearing last Monday.
