Libby Powell speaks to BBC 5 Live about Sarah's unfair dismissal

Christian Legal Centre case worker Libby Powell tells BBC Radio 5 Live that Sarah's dismissal was completely disproportionate to what had happened.

Sarah Kuteh, who has 15 years' nursing experience, was fired by the NHS for talking to patients about her faith and occasionally offering prayer, while helping them to prepare for surgery.

However, following just one official complaint and a few verbal complaints which were noted down by nurses, Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust began disciplinary proceedings which led to her dismissal. The Trust also referred her to the Nursing and Midwifery Council for disqualification proceedings.
