A white worker was unlawfully discriminated against by a racial equality council which gave a post for which he was better qualified to an Asian woman, it was disclosed last night.

The Cleveland Racial Equality Council (REC) and three of its officials unfairly treated Pete Widlinski, 43, last June when his application for race equality officer post was rejected, said a unanimous ruling from a Middlesbrough industrial tribunal.

Mr Widlinski, who will be given details of a compensation award in the new year, said: "I feel totally vindicated but I am still angry about the way I was treated."
