Four council workers have been sacked for sending antisemitic emails comparing Israel’s operations in Gaza to the Holocaust.
Five other staff members received written warnings and have since returned to work at Lancashire County Council.
The office workers were suspended in April after the messages were discovered on the authority’s email accounts. The council said the staff had both sent and received “highly inappropriate emails”.
The sacked staff are appealing against the decision.
