Bristol mother thrown off a bus for breastfeeding | Bristol News

Bristol mother thrown off a bus for breastfeeding Bristol News

Disgraceful behaviour by this bus driver. I'm very glad that she has been given an apology as well as being backed by the Govt. I'm with Harriet Harman MP, Minister for Women and Equality, all the way when she
warned First and other companies that such incidents would become illegal under the new equality bill going through Parliament...and said

'"This discrimination against breastfeeding mothers will be unlawful under the new Equality Bill currently going through Parliament.

"This new law will back up women like Amy Wootten who are giving their babies the very best start in life by breastfeeding."


What better organic and local food could you get for a baby??

Apparently CCTV on the bus shows no incident - so did it happen or not??
