A bird enthusiast was baffled after he was turned away from a falconry display near Weston-super-Mare when he was told adults without children are banned over paedophile fears.
Matthew Richards, 54, had previously visited the Puxton Park with his three grandchildren but wanted to return for another look at the birds of prey area.
But he was astonished when he was told the leisure park didn't admit single men and women on child protection grounds.
When he complained, bosses at the tourist attraction near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, defended the bizarre rule and insisted it is 'in line with other parks'.
