    That is an impossible question to answer.

    Everybody has different views and opinions. I would suggest that you have a look at the above link for an idea what could happen.

    For information, the acessor, will have acess to cctv footage from outside and in and around the acessment center. They know how  far it is from the  nearest car parks, bus stops and train stations. So when asked how you traveled to your acessment and say for example by car they may or will ask where you parked. You found Parking ok. When you answer they will know how many yards it is from cer park to center so you can walk mange this distance. Be warned.

    If coming by car or taxi be sure to be dropped off outside the door in order to avoid this type of shenanigan.
    If someone is coming with you, get them to bring a 10 metre tape measure and get them to measure the distance from the door to the waiting area. They may be evicted by security but there is nothing illegal about measuring it. :|
