Natasha Gollop was recently refused access to a local train service and was told that motorised wheelchairs and scooters are no longer allowed on Arriva trains.
Various supporters of the Arriva Access Campaign have now received replies from Arriva Trains Northern who are stating that electric wheelchairs *are* allowed on their trains, it is just scooters which are not.
This is still completely unacceptable.
The Arriva Access Campaign website has been updated. You can find it at http://www.geocities.com/purplestar1uk/ArrivaCampaign.html
Please contact Arriva, and if possible your MP, the Department of Transport, and the Minister for Disabled People Maria Eagle, to make your voices heard about this discriminatory and exclusionary policy.
Please also spread the word about this campaign. Together we can win it, I'm sure we can. We *have* to!
