Bus firm fights disability ruling

First Bus

A bus company has said they intend to appeal a decision made by a Leeds judge to give priority seating to wheelchair users.

First Bus Group have confirmed that they intend to appeal against the decision made last September to give wheelchair users priority over mothers with pushchairs.

The original claimant Doug Paulley, 35, took the company to court after he was not able to get on a bus because a mother refused to move her pram, in fear of waking her child.

The court ruling stated that it was an unlawful discrimination and awarded Mr Paulley £5,500, and asked First Bus to change their policy.
