A mother has slammed Wetherspoon claiming that bar staff refused to serve her disabled son because they thought he was drunk.

Ross Wilson, 35, was left feeling 'humiliated' when a staff member at the Alexander Graham Bell pub in Edinburgh allegedly didn't believe he had cerebral palsy.

His mother Karen, 62, claims the bar worker 'smirked' when she said her son suffered mobility and learning difficulties as a result of the condition which means he can struggle with balance and co-ordination.

Ms Wilson said that she and Ross, of Newtongrange, Midlothian, met up with her older son Sean at the pub and the two men each had a couple of lagers.

Karen Wilson, 62, said her son Rob, 35, was left feeling 'humiliated' when a staff member at the Alexander Graham Bell pub in Edinburgh allegedly didn't believe he had cerebral palsy
