Did anyone else see this article/video on the BBC about a man who fitted his guidedog with a camera to record the ignorance and discrimination that went on around him?

"The video came out of necessity. Kika was getting hit by peoples' bags and she was getting a lot of abuse. A woman stopped me one day and had a go at me for holding everyone up and said I should apologise, which was a real shock."

    Humans are meant to have a conscience are we not!
