Assistance dogs give independence, says discrimination case winner

Two disabled people have won an equality case against pub owners who stopped them taking their assistance dogs into a carvery restaurant.

A judge at Caernarfon County Court ruled that the Pen-y-Bryn Group, which owns the Village Inn at Llanfairfechan, in Conwy, was guilty of indirect discrimination.

The group was ordered to pay £2,000 in damages.

Burnadette Clutton, one of the pair who brought the case, said assistance dogs were "our independence".
