It was 8.45 am in the morning when it happened as he went to buy petrol and Phil had his young daughters Lottie and Olivia in the car.

He says no one should lose their job over the incident but he'd like an apology and the staff educated about diversity.

Meanwhile Sainsburys said they were 'treating the allegation very seriously' and they 'want customers to be comfortable' on their sites.

The search is on to find new homes for four dogs who've spent more than 1,700 days in kennels in Norfolk.

Dogs Trust Snetterton is appealing for ‘furever’ homes for the homeless hounds. In stark contrast to the average stay of 36 days for Dogs Trust residents, Vinnie, Colleen, Joey and Ben have spent a combined total of over 1,700 days in kennels at the rehoming centre.

Although the pooches receive lots of fuss and attention from their canine carers who adore them, nothing compares to finding a home of their own.

“As much as staff are enjoying the presence of these loveable residents, we would love to see Ben, Joey, Colleen and Vinnie rehomed so they can enjoy their days with a loving family to call their own. These adorable canines have a lot of love to give – we’re appealing to dog lovers in Norfolk to give these ‘pawsome’ pooches a forever home.”

– Diane McLelland-Taylor, Dogs Trust Snetterton Rehoming Centre Manager
