Facebook sorry for 'disturbing' disabled comment
Facebook has apologised to a disability rights activist after he was told people might find images of disabled people "Disturbing". Simon Sansome, who runs Ability Access, discovered Facebook had blocked his page from being shared with new users. Facebook says its employee gave Simon incorrect information. Simon spoke to a Facebook employee over the phone to find out why his page was no longer allowed to be shared. Facebook told Radio 1 Newsbeat: "What Mr Sansome was told is incorrect and should not have been said - and we've apologised unreservedly for that."
