"I'VE been fired because I am Scottish!"

That was the claim made today by proud Scot Jason Colvin, who is at a loss for words – after allegedly being sacked from his job because people could not understand what he was saying.

Mr Colvin claims he was told to leave his work because of his strong Scottish accent, and alleges it was racial discrimination.
