A police marksman who was removed from his job because he was partially deaf amid concerns he could have confused 'shoot' with 'don't shoot' has won a disability discrimination payout. http://dailym.ai/1GjEBov Firstly I do apologise for the source but couldn't find the story in BBC site. As for the story itself whilst I can see the tabloids having a field day with it, I'm pleased to see he won. No I haven't gone soft and swallowed the political correct pill :-) It's just I too have been subject to this awful hearing test that the Home Office recommend for the last 15 years. I have always hated it and old age isn't helping. But on a serious note I have absolutely no trouble with my hearing day to day or on an operational basis, but I do struggle with this particular hearing test. I am sure there are more suitable tests in this day and age that are more effective at testing the range of hearing needed for the role.
