Row over Games wheelchair tickets

The organisers of the Paralympic Games have been accused of discrimination for making wheelchair users book tickets via a business rate phone number.

Former Labour Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe said making people book wheelchair spaces at events by calling an 0844 number was "discrimination".

Locog says wheelchair spaces were sold online for several months and it only switched to the phone lines in May.
