    We have a group of disabled young people and like everyone else...after 7 hours on a coach they need the loo ! ( They would like a drink and some food too...but this is Butlins...fat chance of that any time soon ! )

    It's a power cut caused by a fire. Not exactly butlins fault. No different to if they had a power cut at home. Expect they will all be after compensation now. Some people will use any excuse to get compensation.

    You could've walked round to McDonalds or something in the time it took you to find this site, register an account and post that twice. Or spent time assisting the disabled people with you, instead of trying to gain sympathy from strangers. Just an idea.
