Update: NHS hospital worker suspended for rolling up trousers in heatwave

A hospital worker at Watford General hospital has been suspended for rolling his trousers up on the hottest day of the year.

Private contractor Medirest, a company who supply porters and cleaners to Watford General Hospital, suspended hospital porter Michael Wood, following a disagreement about the wearing of polyester black trousers during the intense heat wave.

Wood was suspended from work when he refused to roll down his trousers during the hot weather. Instead of offering an alternative, Medirest insisted that the normal trousers should be worn.

The GMB have condemned the actions of Medirest.
