Went to school with a guy similar to him - He had stumps for arms and very badly deformed legs.
Back then, there was no such thing as teaching assistant's, Council paid Taxis to and from school.
Simon used to turn up every day on his bicycle.
Saw on Friends Reunited some years back that he is doing well, married and runs his own business.
He also asked who stole his bottom wiper on a second year field trip to Wales -
One of our old teachers posted back - "I'd like to know that too - I had to do the job for a week"!
