Mother told 'breastfeeding similar to someone urinating'

A mother was ordered to stop breastfeeding her four-month-old son in her local swimming baths in Manchester.

Stephanie Wilby claims staff told her it was "indecent exposure", unhygienic and similar to someone urinating in the pool.

The pool's management company, Serco, issued a statement in which they said they were "fully supportive of mothers who wish to breastfeed whilst at our leisure centres" and apologised to Ms Wilby.

Adrian Goldberg from 5 Live spoke to Ms Wilby.
