Tanyalee Davis: Disabled Comedian ‘Amazed’ By Support

Tanyalee Davis

From BBC News.

 

A comedian who criticised a train firm after she was “humiliated” for using a disabled space for her mobility scooter has thanked the public for their support.

Tanyalee Davis, who lives in Norwich, said a Great Western Railway (GWR) service guard threatened to call the police if she did not leave the space.

Ms Davis said she was “amazed” by the support she had received.

The government said the treatment was “entirely unacceptable”.

GWR said on Tuesday that staff who saw the video were “collectively horrified”.

Ms Davis said: “I can’t tell you how amazed I am by the amount of support we have received through YouTube and the BBC and ITV. I feel very honoured.”

She said she wanted to raise concerns but did not want the guard sacked.

“The last thing I want to happen is someone to lose their livelihood,” she said.
