A teenager with dwarfism who was allegedly told he was a "safety risk" for a catering course has been offered a job by Gordon Ramsay.

Louis Makepeace, 18, claims bosses at the Heart of Worcestershire College discriminated against him after being ruled out of the field due to his size.

The 3ft 10in (1.16m) aspiring chef said he was "appalled" by their actions.

The college told the BBC "at no point has Louis been told he could not attend his course", which begins next month.

However, it confirmed "adjustments Louis requires will need to be agreed before an unconditional offer can be given".
