Goth who walks fiancée on a leash is banned by bus driver who told him: 'No dogs allowed'

A goth, who likes to take his fiancée out for a stroll on a leash, claims that a bus driver told them "no dogs allowed" and banned them from boarding. [...]

[The article reports that, although Dani Graves regularly took his girlfriend "round on a lead, they always took it off before getting on a bus as it could be dangerous." The bus driver allegedly told Tasha Maltby that "we don't let freaks and dogs like you on." It isn't clear that the more direct and succinct phrase, "No dogs allowed", was actually used, but expect it to occur in retellings, as well as the detail that the goth girl was still on a leash when she attempted to board the bus.]
