AN airport worker was sacked for leaving a threatening note on his computer telling snooping bosses: “Go f*** yourself”.
London Heathrow data manager Sova Wedlock typed out the x-rated missive and then saved it in a folder called ‘Look Into My Files’.
An IT contractor discovered the memo – entitled ‘message for you’ – while accessing his computer remotely.
Mr Wedlock wrote: “I know that there is an ass***e like you looking into what I am currently internet searching right now and what I write in my emails.
“If you are monitoring me right now I suggest you go f*** yourself as I already know who you are as I have already sassed you out and am monitoring you too.
“I already know everything about you. Don’t f*** around with an ex-military intelligence officer: I am not a dumb f*** like you.”
In highlighted red capital letters, Mr Wedlock then warned: “Watch your back and have a good night sleep because I’ll be watching you. You won’t know when your time is up. But I know.”
Bosses at Heathrow launched a probe after the contractor said he felt threatened by the note.
Mr Wedlock, a data manager who had worked for the airport since 2015, was suspended and sacked for gross misconduct in October 2016.
He subsequently took legal action against his former bosses – claiming wrongful dismissal and requesting compensation for hurt feelings.
He said he was entitled to £12,000 in notice pay plus a £4,000 bonus.
Mr Wedlock told Reading Tribunal Hearing Centre, in Berkshire, that he had a “severe mental health condition due to his unfair dismissal”.
But his lawsuit was thrown out by an employment judge who ruled that the note was “clearly offensive, using swear words and threatening language.”
Judge Emma Hawksworth said: “The contractor who read it found it threatening and found the language abusive.
“They participated in the investigation but asked to be kept anonymous.
“The message was clearly intended for somebody to read and was not a personal note. The names of the folder and file suggest that he wanted it to be read by another user.

“I have found that it was deliberately created by the claimant with the intention that someone else should read it.
“The document was created intentionally, worked on at least two different days, written and saved on different days and amended on four occasions – this was not a one-off or spur of the moment act.”
Heathrow Airport Ltd declined to comment.
