Chinese payout

A CHINESE restaurant which refused entry to a blind man and his guide dog has paid him £500 in an out of court settlement.


Mr Tony Reddish of Selston, Notts., is thought to be the first person to be awarded compensation under the new Disability Discrimination Act.


The restaurant has since put up a sign welcoming guide dogs.
