A teenage ambulance worker who was called a 'f***ing f****t' by his boss has been awarded £20,000 in compensation. Liam Gallimore, who was aged 18 at the time of the abuse, told an employment tribunal that he was subjected to homophobic abuse from Sue Hill-Venning after he started working as part of Medipatrol.

Liam, from Stoke-on-Trent, said that the instances of abuse, which began 'instantly' after he started working for the company, 'were too frequent to set out in detail in his statement' but that Ms Hill-Venning used 'clearly homophobic' terms like 'f****t', not only in reference to himself, but other LGBT members of staff.

Mr Gallimore, now 20, said that a lack of support from Ms Hill-Venning made it impossible for him to finish a training course, and that three other members of staff joined on the homophobic abuse against him, Stoke-on-Trent Live reports.
