A hospital worker from Gloucestershire who was ordered to remove a Christian cross necklace for health and safety reasons has left her job.

Helen Slatter, 43, who worked as a blood sampler at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, did not accept the hospital's offer she could carry it in her pocket.

She had been warned by Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust that she would be sent home if she did not comply.

A trust spokesman confirmed on Tuesday Ms Slatter had handed her notice in.
