Refusal of entry to Travellers claim settled

Consultant – Duncan Burtwell

Cause of Action – Discrimination – Travellers – Refusal of Service (section 29 Equality Act)


We acted for 4 Traveller clients who were refused admission to a pub on the night of the Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder boxing fight. Door staff expressly refused admission on the basis that our clients were Travellers and the staff were acting on instructions not to admit Travellers that night.

We issued proceedings suing for discrimination under section 29 Equality Act. The claim has now settled with the pub company effectively accepting liability on behalf of the pub company and the door security company and agreeing to pay each client £3,250 compensation.
