Alice Bowerman, 31, and partner of two years Terri-Ann Metcalfe, 34, were on a night out in Nottingham on Sunday night and ended up at the Marmaris takeaway. But they were left feeling ‘shocked and angry’ after staff started directing jeers at them after they exchanged a casual peck.

‘I’ve been in same-sex relationships since I was about 19 and I’ve never experienced anything like this before.’

Nottinghamshire Police have confirmed a ‘hate incident’ occurred at the takeaway at around 3.30am on Monday morning and officers are investigating.

Ms Bowerman said staff said, 'We don't want to see that here' and 'We have families here' despite it being 3.30am

‘I’ve always felt safe in Nottingham but this has disgusted me so if you agree then please share this and boycott the place.’

“I’ve had things shouted at me before,” he said. “You’re certainly sensitive to who else is about, looking and checking.

“I feel resigned [about it], I feel sad, but I am not surprised. You move on quickly because it seems to be becoming so much more the norm.”

Nottinghamshire Police said: “A hate incident has been reported and officers are continuing to investigate.

“We’d like to thank the victim for reporting and we will be providing the appropriate support to them.”
