British family left ‘humiliated’ after ‘apartment worker orders them out of their private swimming pool because their burkinis are against Portuguese culture’
- Maryya Dean and sister-in-law suffered alleged slur while in Albufeira, Portugal
- Worker made Ms Dean’s daughter stand up to show example of correct attire
- Ms Dean said family were made to perform ‘walk of shame’ back to apartment
A British family were left ‘humiliated’ after being ordered to leave a swimming pool in the Algarve because they were wearing burkinis.
Maryya Dean, 36, claims she was forced to perform a ‘walk of shame’ with her nine-year-old daughter and sister-in-law Hina by a furious apartment worker, during a trip to the Portguese holiday haven.
The women were relaxing in the private pool at their rented apartment complex in Albufeira, when a man barked that their costumes were ‘not acceptable.’
He fumed that they ‘must wear a bikini to follow Portuguese culture’.
The relatives were incensed further when the worker made Ms Dean’s daughter stand up to demonstrate appropriate swimwear- a conventional costume.
