Crimewave retaliation

Crippled Monkey | 00:00 UK time, Friday, 6 May 2005

A priceless little story tucked away in a corner of yesterday's edition of The Times. Two Ipswich students in wheelchairs were the victims of an attempted mugging. The only thing is ... they weren't actually disabled, but were rehearsing a dance routine "to highlight the vulnerability of disabled people" (The Times's words, not mine). When the mugger tried to grab the video camera they were using, the two female students leapt from their wheelchairs and gave chase. The criminal was quite surprised (to put it mildly) and immediately fled the scene.

That Andy from Little Britain thing is getting everywhere, isn't it?
