Transport providers come under pressure to improve disabled access
Paralympians Anne Wafula Strike and Ade Adepitan back fines for companies that fail to provide facilities for disabled people
Pressure is mounting on transport providers and other companies to improve access for people with disabilities after the Paralympian Anne Wafula Strike revealed in the Guardian that she had been forced to wet herself on a train because the accessible toilet was out of order.
Wafula Strike, a British wheelchair racer and a board member of UK Athletics, has called for companies to be fined if they don’t provide the facilities for disabled people that legislation requires.
