Disabled boy sues theme park over lack of suitable toilet
A severely disabled boy is suing a theme park for failing to provide a suitable "changing places" lavatory.
Adam George, 11, claims Flambards Theme Park, in Cornwall, discriminated and failed to make reasonable adjustments for him under the Equality Act. Flambards says it takes inclusion of all visitors seriously and has made adjustments to its toilets.
The company says a permanent changing places toilet would cost over £40,000 - an expense that could affect jobs.
What do you think? Could this be a step forward to an accessible society?
