pounds 22k for gun axe.

A DRUGS charity worker sacked for firing a toy gun in a staff meeting was yesterday given pounds 22,319 compensation.

Turning Point Scotland co-ordinator Graham Bennett was on a project in Edinburgh helping recovering addicts.

An employment tribunal in the city heard a high dropout rate was a concern and he was developing new activities after paintball, which was popular, was dropped due to the cost.

He suggested target practice with the toy gun but colleagues said it was inappropriate. Bennett, of East Lothian, was later sacked for gross misconduct.

The tribunal ruled the sacking, after 12 years in the job, was unfair but said he was 10 per cent to blame.
