More proof, as if it were needed, that the we only do white legs story from a few days ago was a load of tosh.

An amputee colleague e-mails to say: "At Roehampton I often see black amputees being given black legs just the same as my NHS one only black. I don't see what the problem is."

So there we are -- the cheaper artificial limb covers are available in black.

The "problem" is that Monday's story was complete nonsense....but then we knew that anyway. It would appear that one person's ill-informed comment suddenly became headline news, regardless of its accuracy.
