Former Anglia Reporters Take Legal Action On ITV Over Age Discrimiation
TWO former Anglia TV reporters are today launching legal action against the broadcaster over claims they were victims of unfair dismissal and age discrimination.
Dianne Stradling and Rebecca Atherstone, who are in their 50s, claim they were made to re-apply for their jobs - only to be allegedly rejected in favour of younger women.
The allegations relate to the major restructuring of Anglia TV earlier this year when around 30 jobs were cut as part of plans to merge its east and west programmes.
