I WAS disappointed to hear of the way that Mr Kelly and his dog were reported to have been treated in the unnamed shops in Stroud, writes Peter Baxendale.

It is a pity that these places where not named but I respect that Mr Kelly did not want to do this.

Apart from this upsetting experience I do wonder why it was felt necessary to use his quote of: "It's no different to if I was thrown out for being black or Muslim"

The treatment of Mr Kelly is the point of the article and is a stand alone story of injustice.

In my view to have used his quote and bring in such an analogy was not helpful.
