A PENSIONER who was fitted with an artificial left foot on his right leg has told how his wife laughed when she first spotted it.

Patrick Morrison, 76, of Bathgate, West Lothian, had the operation at Astley Ainslie Hospital, Edinburgh, after losing a limb.

His two left feet were discovered when wife Alexia, 75, took off his protective sock.

Patrick reportedly said: "She just burst out laughing. I phoned the hospital and they cut off the bottom of the limb and replaced the foot."

False limb expert Malcolm Griffiths has been sacked by NHS Lothian. If the Health Professions Council decides he is unfit to practice he could be suspended or struck off.
