BBC Sussex Radio interviews Chris Milsom on the protection disabled people accessing public transport

Chris Milsom, one of our experts in discrimination law, featured on BBC Sussex Radio exploring the protection disabled people accessing public transport. This followed high-profile instances of disabled people facing disadvantage in public transport including most recently Mrs Sandra Nighy, a wheelchair user left to wait 2 hours for a taxi until midnight as a consequence of Southern Rail’s failure to provide wheelchair access to a train despite pre-booking assistance.
