An award of £21,000 compensation for injury to feelings and a further £7,500 aggravated damages to a prison officer who was subjected to a campaign of racial harassment and discrimination has been upheld by the EAT on appeal in (1) Armitage, (2) Marsden and (3) HM Prison Service v Johnson.

Claude Johnson, who is English-born of Afro-Caribbean origin, was subjected to a "campaign of appalling treatment" by his prison officer colleagues after he objected to the manhandling of a black prisoner.
