History of Religious Tensions in Civil Nuclear Constabulary

Posted: 4th May 2022

A Scottish Catholic firearms officer has won a religious harassment case sectarian abuse was written on his work coffee mug. Police Sergeant Paul McCue discovered the words had been graffitied on the underside of his Celtic Football Club mug and was so upset he had to go home from work. The officer – part of a unit dedicated to protecting nuclear sites – had previously been ‘harassed’ by colleagues writing comments about loyalist paramilitary group the Ulster Defence Association, an employment tribunal heard. The hearing was told there was a history of ‘religious tensions’ within the Civil Nuclear Constabulary unit where Sgt McCue worked, with the force having to hold investigations and training sessions following allegations of sectarianism. Now, Sgt McCue is in line for compensation after successfully suing the force, which protects the UK’s nuclear sites, over the mug incident.
