Man receives new leg after drink at his local pub
Article in the Sunday Telegraph
"The father-of-two popped down to his local pub on the same day surgeon Alistair Gibson, who specialises in fitting the computer-controlled limb, was there for a pint.
When the two happened to meet Mr Gibson mentioned he had a spare leg and could fit Mr Huckvale for free.
Mr Huckvale had his leg amputated when he was 29 after a benign tumour was removed.
Before the chance encounter, he had been limping around in a false leg, which didn’t fit properly and walked with the help of crutches and was sometimes in a wheelchair."
