A WOMAN has been forced to visit A&E after her clapping in support of the NHS led to a fractured wrist.
Donna Sheridan bravely pushed through the pain barrier to show her admiration for the nation’s healthcare professionals before calling 111 and being sent to hospital.
Sheridan said: “I’m no hero, although in a way I was injured in the line of duty.
“I just wanted to make sure I showed my solidarity with NHS workers. More importantly, I wanted everyone who lives nearby to know I’d shown that solidarity and to make them feel pathetic for their feeble efforts.
“However I have to say I wasn’t impressed to be kept waiting so long in A&E. These doctors and nurses need to pull their fingers out.”
Neighbour Wayne Hayes said: “I’ve started banging pots and pans together instead, that’s much safer.
“Sadly I did break all my kitchenware though, so I’ll be out shopping with lots of other people tomorrow.”
