Tesco has apologised after a checkout worker was reportedly heard saying "gay people shouldn't have babies", after serving a pregnant lesbian couple.
Another couple overheard the comments as they waited to pay at Tesco Extra in Surrey Quays in east London earlier this month. They claim the cashier said that being gay "is wrong".
After being challenged, the worker allegedly added that is was "free country so I can say what I like!" and "all gay people should die alone".
In a statement, Tesco said it had apologised to the customers involved and has begun an investigation.
