Theatres face disability action

Actor and Thalidomide campaigner Mat Fraser has warned it may take a "flood of court cases" to make all theatres obey new laws on disabled access, reports the BBC.

Under new Disability Act legislation, businesses (including theatres) are required to make "reasonable adjustments" for disabled staff and customers.
He [Fraser] fears some of the older theatres in London and other cities are "going to have to be sued" before they make the changes needed.

"That's the way it is," he said. "Let the carnage begin and hopefully in two years' time we might be able to go to the theatre."
