A swimming pool is evacuated after an artificial leg is mistaken for a paedophile – Telegraph Blogs: "Artificial leg prompts ‘paedophile panic’ at swimming pool and evacuation of children.
An entire class of primary school children was evacuated from a swimming pool – because a prosthetic leg sticking out from underneath a cubicle was thought to be a paedophile.
The alarm was raised when staff noticed the foot poking out as the eight- and nine-year-olds got changed following a swimming lesson.
Teachers immediately took the children out of Larkfield Leisure Centre in Aylesford, Kent, but were stunned to discover that the foot was actually part of a prosthetic leg."
