‘I have to plan for if I am stranded, if I am dropped, if my chair is damaged’: the perils of traveling while disabled | Disability

Sophie Morgan is fed up. The TV presenter, best known for her appearances on Loose Women and presenting the Paralympics, travels all the time for work – she films all over the world – and she knows what she is doing. But, because she is a wheelchair user, “every single flight is a risk”, she says.
