Gay soldier wins £187K

TRIBUNAL

A lesbian soldier yesterday won a near-£187,000 payout from the MoD for a male sergeant's sexual harassment.

Lance Bombardier Kerry Fletcher, 32, was pestered and sent lewd texts saying he could "turn her straight".

She was so distraught she handed in her notice after 10 years at a Royal Artillery stables in North Yorkshire.

An employment tribunal in Leeds ruled Sheffield-born Ms Fletcher, now of Birmingham, had been subjected to "as severe a case of victimisation as one could see".

She will get £186,895.52 for her "disgusting treatment".
