Salvation Army collectors could be construed as religious harassment

Salvation Army collectors have been told not to rattle their tins as it could be construed as religious harassment
For 130 years they have been part of Christmas, filling the air in towns across the land with music and carols.

But one thing is missing from the repertoire of Salvation Army bands this year - the percussion of rattling tins.

Members have been forbidden to shake their charity tins - even if it's done in time to the music - in case it harasses or intimidates people. One said she had been told it might also offend other religions.

    You cede your freedom every time you contribute to charity.
