Recently a council had built a cage for an autistic boy to play in and as a result there was serious outrage regarding the whole matter which caused the council to apologize to his parents.
As per the Scottish Sun the 18-year-old schoolboy’s family, friends and relatives have collected an amount of 500 pounds to make a safe playing space for the disabled boy. They are, however, very sacred of the dog run-style structure which was built at the Nicholson Institute in Stornoway on the isle of Lewis.
Norman MacDonald, senior councilor said, “I wish to apologise unreservedly on behalf of the council to the family of the boy involved. I think it is very clear to us that the provision that was out in place was entirely inappropriate for the use to which it was going to be put.”
Another statement by the council said that they built the play area with the best of intentions, however, the right degree of thought was probably missing from the built up structure.
