But the widow was left devastated after bosses at the company which made œ161 million profit last year in the forced her to leave after unfairly changing her shift pattern she claims."

It goes on to explain that "She is now claiming unfair dismissal and age-related discrimination ? making her one of the oldest employees in Britain ever to do so. Mrs Mullenger claims bosses at the store in Bletchley Buckinghamshire changed her shift patterns hours a day she would not be able to work. She was originally contracted to work 12 hours a week of the past 10 years and worked more except on Wednesdays Thursdays on Friday.
