Tesco apologises over 'ginger jibe' Christmas card


A Christmas card has been withdrawn from two Tesco stores in York after complaints that it makes fun of children with ginger hair.

The card shows a child with ginger hair sitting on the lap of Santa Claus, and the words: "Santa loves all kids. Even ginger ones."

Davinia Phillips, 30, of York, whose three daughters are redheads, said she found the card offensive.

Chris Buckler reports.
