Family in legal dispute over disability row with Flamingo Land
Paul and Belinda Edwards were at the theme park in Yorkshire in 2010.
A family turned away from a holiday park picnic area in a disability row is continuing its legal battle over the move.
Paul and Belinda Edwards were at Flamingo Land in Yorkshire with their two children when they wanted to buy a meal from a restaurant at the facility and eat it at a nearby picnic area.
The meal became a disagreement over disability rights as Mr Edwards is registered blind, the couple's seven-year-old daughter Isla has cystic fibrosis and her sister Melissa, 13, has Down's syndrome and autism.
Staff refused to allow the move to the picnic area as it was deemed against park rules. The family had decided to eat there because it felt it was too challenging to do so at the restaurant because they felt Melissa would have been uncomfortable.
The family, from Kilmarnock, in East Ayrshire, was asked to leave, but it sued the company that runs the park for disability discrimination.
A claim on behalf of Melissa won a £4000 damages payout, but this was overturned by a judge.
This decision is being appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeal in London, with a hearing expected in the case later this year.
