Radio Station Pulls Trailer Making Fun Of Heather Mills
A radio station has scrapped a trailer making fun of Paul McCartney's fiancee
Heather Mills. Presenter Terry Christian has been accused of offending people
with disabilities in the plug for his Century FM show. Miss Mills had her leg
amputated after being involved in a road accident. Amputee Sam Gallop,
trustee and former chairman of the Limbless Association, told the Manchester
Evening News: "Would anyone make a joke about a two-year-old child who has
just had an amputation? You certainly should not make a living out of it. "We
are in the business of helping people, not making jokes about them. My feet
were burned off. I don't find it funny." Stephanie Barker, of Century FM,
said: "We've listened to the tape and can comment that while Terry would
never knowingly cause offence to anyone, he has a very tongue-in-cheek manner
and on this occasion, it appears that this comment has caused offence. "We,
of course, take all complaints extremely seriously and as a result, this
promotional trail has now been removed."
