The Madrid Metro has sacked its head of security over a memo warning staff to be suspicious of gays. The man was shown the door on Monday and two other security employees have also been fired. The memo, which was circulated among Madrid Metro staff, called for “gays, musicians and beggars” to be more routinely checked for tickets than other passengers. In a show of remorse, representatives from Madrid Metro met with gay and lesbian groups to explain to them in person that the Metro does not share the views expressed in the memo.
