A CHARITY shop worker has been hospitalised after a fight in a city store.

A brawl broke out at a Barnardos in Edinburgh shortly after 4pm after a woman was apparently accused of shoplifting. During the fight a 36-year-old was allegedly assaulted and an ambulance crew was called.

The male member of staff developed chest pain and was taken to the ERI.

A police spokeswoman said: “Police can confirm that a female has been detained regarding an alleged assault at a charity store in Gorgie Road, Edinburgh.

“A man has been taken to hospital as a precaution but not as a result of injuries sustained during the incident.”
