A Belfast woman has been awarded £2,000 after a judge ruled that security staff that confiscated her fizzy drink at a concert had discriminated against her.
Kayla Hanna suffers from Type 1 diabetes. Due to the impact this has on her blood sugar levels she carries with her a bottle of Lucozade. Whilst at a concert in 2016 event security staff prohibited her from taking her drink into the event despite Ms Hanna showing a diabetes tattoo, her insulin and a device for measuring blood sugar levels.
It was found that the organisation in charge of security, Eventsec Ltd, had failed to provide a reasonable adjustment to their policy of not allowing liquids to be brought into a concert.
