Salon sued by Muslim hairdresser in headscarf

Last Updated: 1:45am BST 01/04/2008

A Muslim hairdresser has accused a salon owner who objected to her Islamic headscarf of "blatant" religious discrimination.
Bushra Noah, 19, told an employment tribunal that she was "devastated" after being turned down for a job as a stylist at Wedge salon in King's Cross, north London.
She claimed that she could have fitted in at the salon, which specialises in "urban, edgy and funky" cuts, even though she insists her headgear is essential to her beliefs.
