Feet don't grip

Michael Heighton, 26, prevented from climbing up the railings and balcony, says, "The notice is rubbish." He's a wheelchair user and without this access can't get to this particular floor. "People climb stairs, escalators; insurance companies don't bother yet they're much more likely to fall than I am. My hands grip whereas their feet can't." No official comment was given but a member of the security staff said, off the record, that he'd seen youngsters acting far more recklessly on the stairs.
