An entire class of children was evacuated from a swimming pool after a prosthetic leg was mistaken for a paedophile.
Teachers from Kings Hill Primary School in Kent spotted the leg poking out from a cubicle whilst taking their class of year 4 children swimming at Larkfield Leisure Centre.
They believed it belonged to a â€œpeeping Tomâ€ and after alerting staff evacuated the 60 children from the pool post-haste.
Head teacher Kerry Thomas told the Kent Messenger:â€œOne 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.â€
Yet upon investigation it was found that the leg belonged to a disabled man who had left it on the floor of the cubicle while he went for a swim.
