A mother has spoken of her anger after her wheelchair-bound son was left at the side of the road because one man would not move on for him on an empty bus.

Caroline Hazelgrave, from Leeds, West Yorkshire, felt disgusted that the man would not move his bag or himself for just a few seconds so her son Luke could be placed in the wheelchair space.

Luke, 26, who has cerebral palsy, was on his way back from having lunch in Harehills along with his support worker and had already been unable to board two buses because they were full on Tuesday (MARCH 7).
