Disability and travel: accessible Scotland

Daniel Gallagher from Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, who had both legs amputated after he was run over by a police van. See Centre Press story CPAMPUTEE; A former rugby player who lost his legs in an accident has had his benefits stripped ñ and been told to prove he is disabled. Daniel Gallagher was run down by a police van as crossed a road during a night out with friends. Both of his legs had to be amputated due to the severity of his injuries. But now the 26-year-old from Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, must prove his disability to the Department for Work and Pensions over his right to claim benefits, including a car. Daniel lost his legs after the accident on Arran four years ago and spent seven months in hospital while he was treated. He has been on disability living allowance (DLA) since his recovery but Daniel claims his payments were stopped last month.
