THE husband of a severely disabled woman has complained about the toilet for disabled people in a Burton shopping centre.
Malcom Gee and his wife Sharon visited the disabled toilet in Coopers Square during a shopping trip and found the lock was broken.
Mrs Gee uses a wheelchair and needs the space the larger disabled toilet offers.
Mr Gee claimed the lock had now been broken for nearly two weeks.
He said: "It's the only disabled toilet in the centre. It's not good enough.
"There are a lot of disabled people in Burton and they can't go to the toilet unless another person is there with them while the lock's broken – it's not fair.
"It's been two weeks now. Hw hard is it to fix a lock?"
Coopers Square centre manager David Chadfield denied that the lock had been broken for two weeks.
He said: "It is something we are aware of and Mr Gee approached centre staff to tell them about it. But I'm not sure where he got two weeks from – the lock was only broken on Wednesday afternoon. It was vandalised.
"We put a sign up to say the lock was broken but the toilet could still be used, while waiting for it to be repaired.
"It has now been fixed."
