A blind seven-year-old girl who once used cardboard tubes to guide herself home has been banned from using her walking cane at school, in case she 'trips up teachers and pupils'.
Lily-Grace Hooper suffered a stroke when she was just four days old, leaving her virtually blind and only able to see light in one eye.
However, she received an essential lifeline earlier this year when a charity donated her a fibre-glass walking cane after she started using cardboard tubes to guide herself.
Lily-Grace was banned from using the device at her primary school after a risk assessment said it posed a high risk to others around her.
Instead, the seven-year-old has been told she should instead have full adult support at all times, and has to ‘walk carefully’.
Have people become so clumsy lazy and stupid that they need to takeaway a blind little girls cane because somebody might trip on it? This is just idiotic morons trying to get their 15 minutes of fame.
Hey heartless school officials, You are teachers teach students to walk around with their eyes open.
Things like this make me want to punch those people hard.
