A Selfridges shop assistant who was suspended for refusing to serve a friend of the EDL leader has been reinstated.

The flagship department store initially apologised to Tommy Robinson for the treatment of his friend, awarding them both a free lunch.

And it said it had been "disappointed" at the worker's actions.

But now the assistant, who was represented by shopworkers' union USDAW, has been reinstated.

The store told The Huffington Post UK: "Since 1909 we have welcomed everyone to our store and have endeavoured to provide a world-class service.

"After our internal investigation, our long term sales associate involved in the issue with the EDL has had his suspension lifted, and will be back at work in due course.”

The BBC quoted a Selfridges spokesman saying: "The assistant has worked for Selfridges for seven years with an unblemished record and he accepts what he did was wrong."
