The Isle of Man has re-called 700 of its '1968 model' three legged people for what it calls a minor modification.
A spokesperson told us this morning "It is in the interests of safety that if you own one of these people you must return it to an appropriate surgeon to have a component of the third leg checked for safety."
A small number of these people have been found to have a corroded big toe, causing reported "going around in circles" behaviour often in dancing conditions. The surgeon will fit a silicone toe cap to seal the big toe.
The modification will be carried out free of charge and takes approximately four hours to perform under a general anaesthetic.
The modification only applies to a small number of 'Friday Afternoon' births from batch 50641c. Alternatively to be honest you could just lop the toe off with long handled tree pruners, but don't quote me on that."
