Beefeater bullying alleged

November 03, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Women faced their share of trouble at the Tower of London, including three queens who were beheaded there. But treachery has long been considered a thing of the past at the notorious 11th century fortress. At least until now.

If new charges are true, the Tower will add bullying to the list of foul deeds committed there. The victim: Moira Cameron, the first woman selected to join the all-male ranks of the Tower's yeoman warders, known as "Beefeaters."

Tower officials acknowledged that she had apparently been subjected to a campaign of bullying and harassment by some male colleagues. They said two male warders have been suspended and a third is under investigation.
