    Can I ask in America does a crutch just mean an artifical walking aid as it doesnt over here and it sounds dead funny every time they announce it!

    Yeah, just something to help you walk. Although it can also mean something to help with stuff other than walking.

    This story happened back in January, I hadn't heard anything about it till i looked it up just now. So I guess it's just the British media that has run with it.

    I always thought a crutches were the excuses people made to keep them in from bettering themselves in someway? Like pity to oneself for the sake of getting more pity from everybody else; though you really don't need, and neither does anybody else!
