"Swooning over the new John Lewis ad?"

John Lewis has been shamed very publicly by parents who say the retailer does not provide adequate changing areas for disabled children - meaning they have to make do with what they can on the floor.

Mum Laura Rutherford @MumsMissions shared a photo on Twitter of a young child on the floor in a John Lewis cubicle to highlight the situation...

In a tweet to John Lewis Laura said: 

"While everyone is swooning over how wonderful the new @johnlewisretail advert is... just take a moment to look at this photo which was taken in one of their stores because they don't provide #changingplaces for severely disabled people and refuse to do so. Priorities."

The post has been retweeted over a thousand times and Laura, who is a key player behind campaign Changing Places - is calling on businesses to provide better equipment for people in store. Laura describes herself as a 'Disability Champion.'

A spokesman for John Lewis has said that despite the limitations on space, they do have disabled customer toilets and that they are currently looking at new refurbishing plans that will even better accommodate in future.
