Hindu temple bars worshipper's guide dog

A Hindu temple in north-west London has stopped a blind man from bringing his guide dog inside.

Amit Patel says he phoned ahead to check if he could bring his dog along, but was then told there was not enough room for the animal at the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Neasden, north-west London.

The temple has apologised to Mr Patel but insists guide dogs will still not be allowed in.

BBC Asian Network's Sejal Asar reports.
