A blue badge holder was allegedly told she 'wasn't disabled enough' to park in a disabled space.

Leigh Bobbett, from Larkfield, was with her family at the Cyclopark, in Watling Street, Gravesend, for her son's 14th birthday on Wednesday, when she claims she was discriminated against for her disability.

Mrs Bobbett, who has fibromyalgia, explained that a member of staff from the centre followed her before telling her she was parked in a disabled space.

When the 33-year-old pulled the badge from her car, with her photo ID on, and showed the man she says he told her that the spaces are mainly for wheelchair users and that as she was able to walk the short distance from the centre to her car that she didn't need to park there.

"He told me I should have parked towards to back of the car park and left the disabled spaces free for wheelchair users," the mother-of-two said.

"I was completely horrified. I've never felt so intimidated and embarrassed."
