At the launch of the disability web site access4fitness at London's Cafe Royal the other day, Heather Mills offered a tip on how to teach youngsters to overcome their prejudice against amputees. "It's important to educate children from a young age so I suggest forcing children to tie one leg to their back for a day to see how they cope," she said with a grin. "If I'm in a gym and people see my metal leg popping off and bouncing all over the place I make light of the situation and that makes people feel more comfortable. Disabled people should stop looking to others for help and try to help themselves. I get called one-legged hoppy model but I don't care."
