A family tourist attraction near Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset won't admit single men and women without children because of paedophile fears.
A bird enthusiast from High Littleton near Bath was baffled after he was turned away from a falconry display at Puxton Park when he was told adults without children are banned.
Matthew Richards had previously visited Puxton Park with his three grandchildren but wanted to return for another look at the birds of prey area.
But he was astonished when he was told the leisure park didn't admit single men and women on child protection grounds.
When Matthew Richards, a married father-of-three, complained, bosses at the tourist attraction near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, defended the bizarre rule and insisted it is 'in line with other parks'.
Alistair Mead, managing director of the park, said the rule has been in place since the park opened seven years ago.
