Bus firm wants age discrimination law reviewed after crash

Bus company Midland Red, part of the Stagecoach Group, has called for a review of age discrimination laws after admitting to two health and safety offences when it allowed 77-year-old Kailash Chander to drive. Chander was suffering from undiagnosed dementia when he lost control of his bus and careered into a supermarket, killing two. After the hearing, Midland Red managing director Phil Medlicott said: “We support a review of how current age discrimination law impacts specific roles. This includes whether there should be a statutory legal age limit for drivers of buses.”
