A British Airways employee who claimed she suffered discrimination at work because of her faith has won a landmark legal battle at the European Court of Human Rights.
Nadia Eweida, 60, took the airline to a tribunal after she was forced out of her job for wearing a cross in breach of company uniform codes.
Her case was rejected in Britain but today European judges found in her favour. They ruled against three more Christians who launched similar action.
