The Bionic Man

Don’t Challenge Him To A Three-Legged Race

A one-legged man who needed a £40,000 bionic limb to walk again got one free - after a visit to a pub. David Huckvale, 42, met Alistair Gibson, one of only 10 doctors in the world who can fit the computer-controlled limb. The surgeon said Huckvale could have it for nothing.

FOOTNOTE: Going out on a limb.
