Sikh police officers who wear turbans cannot join firearms teams, following a ruling from the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo).
Officers can choose instead to wear a smaller head covering known as a patka, which will fit under a helmet.
The Acpo guidance follows consultations with the Home Office and a range of police associations representing Sikhs.
Sounds sensible to me frankly, can anyone see the problem with this?
