Heartlands Hospital is appealing to locals to return any disused crutches.

The Hospital is encouraging all those who have borrowed crutches from A&E to return them so they can be used for other patients.

Hilary Clemson, A&E matron at Heartlands, said: "Don't be afraid to return old crutches. We will be very grateful for the return of them, especially at what is a busy time of year for the emergency department."
