LISTEN: Tesco Denies Edinburgh Schools Shop Discrimination

An Edinburgh dad claims Tesco is treating private and state school pupils differently.

Parents say Boroughmuir High teenagers are having to queue outside while George Watson's College are allowed into the shop.

The firm has told Heart the claims are untrue.

Shop bosses said queues did have to be in place at times during busy periods.

Dad Neil Pollock has told our reporter Connor Gillies he wants an apology:

A Tesco spokesperson said, “This is completely untrue – there has never been any discrimination between state and private school children at this store.”
