Easyjet 'refused Leicestershire boy over wheelchair'
A Leicestershire mother has been considering legal action after a budget airline refused to carry her disabled son.
Alexandra Spencer, from Syston, said she was told by Easyjet that it will not take her 12-year-old son on a flight to Cyprus because his specialised 95kg wheelchair is too heavy for baggage handlers.
Declan Spencer, who has muscular dystrophy, has flown before without restriction with other airlines.
In a statement Easyjet said it regularly carried powered wheelchairs which have parts weighing less than 60kg each, to protect the health and safety of staff.
