A few days back in the Kings Hill Primary School, Kent, a chaos took place and children were soon to be evacuated when they were attending their swimming pool sessions. The incident took place at Larkfield Leisure Centre, when teachers spotted a prosthetic leg coming out from a cubicle whilst of the pool and the same was mistaken assuming it for a paedophile. The school authorities believed that it belonged to a “peeping Tom” and soon the staff present its course of action evacuating 60 children from the pool.
In a word with head teacher Kerry Thomas, we heard saying: “One of the members of staff had seen it, and we quickly moved the children out, and everything was dealt with in accordance with school policy.” However, upon proper investigation of the fact, it became clear that the leg actually belonged to a disabled man who had forgotten on the cubicle floor when he went to swimming.
The paedophile myth has raised curiosity within people where historian Tim Stanley wrote in Telegraph resembling the event like something out of TV satire ‘The Day Today’ and further said “I can’t wait to read about the paedophile who was mistaken for a prosthetic leg”.
