A school disputes a mother’s claims that her son was not allowed to go to the loo.

Nicola Wallace, 25, claims her son Liam, five, wet himself after being told he had to finish his lunch before using the toilet at Southminster Primary School.

The school says it always allows a child to use the loo when they ask.

Miss Wallace, of Tattersalls Chase, Southminster, said: “He said he wasn’t allowed to go until he had eaten his dinner.

“My son admits he is a slow eater. As a result he wet himself.”
