A butcher was sacked by his employer today for committing a sexual act.
David Opick (43) of Alexandra road in the city was working at Fred's butchers in the Victoria Centre when a security guard saw him putting his penis in the bacon slicer.
The guard told his employer and the police were called. Mr Opick was summoned to the office and was immediately relieved of his post.
Harry Dawkins the head butcher at Fred's said we are a family firm and will not tolerate such rampant debauchery, he continued to say that the bacon slicer was also dismissed.
Opick and the bacon slicer Annie Pricemore are both going for unfair dismissal.
