A Builth Wells student with a stoma who was accused of taking drugs in a disabled toilet by Wetherspoons staff has called the company's decision to place 'accessible toilet stickers' in all of its pubs as a "little victory".

Amber Davies, 21, says speaking publicly about her experience at one of their Birmingham pubs has resulted in JD Wetherspoon becoming the first pub chain to change their accessible toilet signage to support Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s Not Every Disability Is Visible Campaign.

"A little victory but nevertheless, significant and 100 per cent a step in the right direction," Amber said.

"Wetherspoons, your ****** response and lack of apology did not suffice but thanks for taking some notice and action in bettering this behaviour."

The Cardiff University student has lived with a permanent stoma as a result of ulcerative colitis since she was 13 years old.

In September, Amber posted an open letter on Instagram saying that staff at the pub chain had “very happily and very openly accused me of snorting, dealing and having sex in the disabled toilet for ‘there is no other reason I would need to visit it so often’”. The chain later apologised to Amber.

She said in a post to her almost 7,000 followers: "Don’t back down, stand up for what you’re entitled to and make noise about things that are unfair.

"One day, society WILL be inclusive, welcoming and accepting of everybody."

Amber posted a picture of Wetherspoons message to staff about adopting the Not Every Disability is Visible campaign.

In it, it said all pubs from Monday, October 21, will receive two stickers, one for the main window entrance and another for the accessible toilet door.

Wetherspoons said: “We want to make sure all of our customers feel comfortable when visiting any of our pubs. We’re delighted to install these new signs that help to both increase awareness that not all disabilities are visible, and to ensure that anyone who needs to, can feel confident using our accessible toilets.”

Chief Executive at Crohn’s & Colitis UK Sarah Sleet said: “JD Wetherspoon has made a simple but significant change in minimising the impact Crohn’s and Colitis can have on people’s lives - we know that these signs make a real difference to people living with these devastating conditions. We are grateful to the company for joining our campaign and showing their commitment to tackling stigma and discrimination for all their customers.”
