A little boy with Down’s Syndrome was told he wouldn’t be allowed to go trampolining on his birthday because he needed a doctor's note.
Jack Jones is such a regular visitor to Oxygen Freejumping that his family say he’s now a familiar face.
But when the youngster went to enjoy an 11th birthday treat at the venue in Stretford, Manchester, with his gran, they were told Jack couldn’t use the equipment without a doctor’s note.
His devastated family say they've never been asked to produce any documents relating to Jack’s condition in all the months they've been visiting the centre - with the most recent visit just four days before his birthday treat.
When grandmother Sandra Simister complained about the inconsistency, Jack was eventually allowed to join his siblings on the trampolines and the centre gave the group pizza and a goodie bag.
But mum Ange Jones, from Irlam, said she feels like her super-active son, who enjoys climbing and swimming, has been ‘discriminated against, very specifically.’
Managers at the Trafford venue say they welcome visitors of all abilities - but do insist on precautionary medical checks for some, given the potential for falls and injury.
