An awards ceremony organised by staff at Sainsbury’s featuring a Rear of the Year category has been cancelled.

The event, which was due to take place in Ely at the end of the month, was scrapped after a complaint about the choice of award categories.

Categories included Sexiest Male, Sexiest Female, Most Blonde Moments, Pure Banter, Hard Grafter, Colleague of the Year and Longest Tea Breaker.

A Sainsbury’s spokesman said the event was cancelled “the moment colleagues realised that offence had been caused”.
