Hang on, what’s all this?

Walking frame dangles from wires in McClurg Court, Motherwell.
Walking frame dangles from wires in McClurg Court, Motherwell.

We’ve heard of being kept hanging on the line - but this is ridiculous.

Who knows how this walking frame ended up suspended from telephone wires in Motherwell’s McClurg Court, but a reader suggests that in these times of NHS cuts someone should be making an effort to retrieve it.

The man who took this picture said: “While some elderly people with mobility issues struggle to get about due to a lack of walking frames, this NHS frame which probably cost about £30 has been hanging on the telephone wires in McClurg Court for some time.

“It appears North Lanarkshire Council, BT and NHS Lanarkshire have no interest in retrieving the apparatus, unless it falls on someone’s head.

“Interesting in times of NHS cuts.”
