Iam sorry but I cannot give you good news. I'm afraid you are indifficulty here.
I have to tell you the truth.
I am sorry but it would be wrong of me to avoid givingyou the downside of your position.
Denying you access to a toilet is not an offence in theUK. It might very well be that you had aperfect right to access but that doesn’t make it a crime.
In terms of an assault, on the face of it, he did layhands upon you which would be an assault. I don’t know what his justification is but in the absence of any such,that would be an offence. You can make areport.
In terms of a claim, yes, in principle although for avery low sum unless you suffered injuries that stopped you working.
Do remember that I can only give you myopinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion.Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting tolose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even thoughthey have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a goodchance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer toevery legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed tocourt.
The ultimate decisioncomes from a county court judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in acriminal case heard in the magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
