A mother has spoken of her disbelief after a playgroup attended by her five-year-old son has banned him from attending the group while wearing the clothes he loves.
Romeo Clarke, from Rugby, Warwickshire, has a fascination with dresses and the colour pink. The youngster has a collection of over 100, as well as eight pairs of children's high heel shoes that he likes to wear every day, along with a pink accessory.
However, it appears that Romeo's love for dresses isn't appreciated by all, as his mother Georgina claims that staff at his playgroup have said he must leave the group as his choice of attire upsets the other children and confuses them because they don't know whether to call Romeo a boy or a girl.
Georgina defended her son, saying "he's just a boy who loves dresses. I'm used to it now, its just him," she added.
