Tesco Supermarket has been accused of religious discrimination after banning a Jedi Knight for wearing a hood. Daniel Jones — leader of the UK’s first Jedi Church — was branded a security risk and ejected by three staff after refusing to remove his hoodie at a Tesco in Bangor, North Wales.

A Tesco spokesman said: “We would ask Jedi to remove hoods. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all went hoodless without going to the Dark Side.”
