City of Derry Airport changes stance over poppy

City of Derry Airport has backed down after telling an employee it was unacceptable to wear a poppy at work, according to an Ulster Unionist councillor.

Mary Hamilton said when she queried the case with airport management, she was told they were enforcing council policy by banning the poppy.

But Derry City Council has said it does not have such a policy.

Mrs Hamilton said management at the airport didn't realise that the poppy wasn't banned by Derry City Council..
