  10. 'First time' guide dog was turned away

    BBC Local Live

    Mr Edge says it's the first time he has been turned away from a restaurant with his guide dog Hudson and says he was "incredibly disappointed" at having been turned away this time.

    Just last week was with a group of other guide dog users lobbying in Parliament asking for more to be done to prosecute people who turn away guide dogs.

    "Unfortunately it's more of a common occurrence than people realise," added Mr Edge. "Three out of four guide dog owners are still being refused entry to restaurants, taxis and shops.

    "It's not just the issue of 'I'm sorry you can't come in here', It's the emotional impact as well."

  11. Charity 'shocked' by guide dog refusal

    Dave Wade

    BBC Local Live

    James White, senior campaigns manager at charity Guide Dogs said they were shocked to hear about Mr Edge's experience.

    He said: "It’s always distressing for a guide dog owner to be illegally refused access by a business. It can knock people’s confidence and prevent them from living independently.

    “Sadly these illegal refusals are far too common, with our research showing that seven out of 10 guide dog owners have been turned away because their dog isn’t welcome. Guide Dogs is campaigning to change this.”

  12. Weather update: Staying overcast this afternoon

    Feeling cool with a fresh northerly breeze, gusting at times up to 25mph, especially over the hills. Highs between 12C (54F) and 14C (57F).

  14. Restaurant says it has no issues with guide dogs

    BBC News Online

    In a statement Jason Liu from the Shangri-La Chinese Restaurant said the refusal to allow Mr Edge and his guide dog into the restaurant was not around discrimination but purely around adequate spacing and health and safety.

    The statement from him adds: "I would like to apologise and understand this incident has greatly upset to Mr Edge and his party. I would like to make it very clear that we have no issues accepting guide dogs into our establishment - this is a proven fact as Mr Edge has dined with us previously."  

  15. Guide dog legally allowed in public spaces

    BBC Local Live

    Nathan Edge, 21, visited the Shangri-La restaurant in Mansfield Woodhouse on Saturday and says he was turned away by staff for hygiene reasons.

    Mr Edge said: "I explained he's a working dog so legally he's allowed in any public area such as a restaurant.

    "After a slight pause they explained there was no space but I said 'I'm more than happy to wait for a space'.

    "Then the manager came out to say there was a hygiene issue."
