Isolated in a box for 100 hours to raise awareness on autism

Shop worker Hayley Bicker wanted to raise awareness about autism after feeling shocked at people's reaction to an autistic child in a supermarket.

She decided to lock herself in a glass box for 100 hours to raise awareness of a condition that leaves some people feeling isolated from the world.

Karen Betts whose five-year-old son Robbie is autistic, said she thought the idea was amazing as autistic children sometimes look like they are having a tantrum but it can be related to sensory issues.
