Guard forces disabled duo to crawl

`Two disabled men were forced to crawl to their car after a security guard refused to let them take borrowed wheelchairs past a shopping centre entrance.

Westfield, which manages Fountain Gate shopping centre in Melbourne, apologised to the two men, who have muscular dystrophy.

The pair, both in their 40s, had used wheelchairs loaned to them by the shopping centre in Narre Warren.

They said a security guard had insisted they leave the chairs at the entrance and cover the five metres to their cars unaided.’
