A doctors’ surgery has issued a warning to its patients after a blade from a Stanley knife was found attached to a door handle, seemingly put there with the malicious intent of hurting somebody.
A sign has been put on the door to the Poplars Surgery on Magpie Crescent in Stevenage which reads: “Beware all patients. Please check the door handle is free of any hazards before using.
“We have had a report of a Stanley blade being put into the handle to catch fingers.”
One patient said: “Why anyone would do this is beyond me. Be careful.”
Another said: “What is wrong with people? Please make people aware.”
