Colin Bennett, who has Ushers syndrome, has campaigned long and hard for improved induction loop facilities in Brighton and Hove town halls. A court case has been avoided, but Brighton and Hove City Council have backed down and paid £2500 - partly to cover Mr Bennett's legal costs, and the rest to charity.
Which just goes to show what can be done if you have the time, the tenacity, the commitment and the stamina to stand by your guns.
A complete dossier of the correspondence relating to this claim under the DDA is available here.
Many congratulations to Colin: he clearly cares more about what is right than about making life comfortable for those who are supposed to be getting it right. And, whilst he may not be flavour of the month with certain council officials, he's the hero of the hour in my book.
