Awful news about Lenny,Radio Lancs commentator and ex Rover, who has contracted motor neurone disease (same as Stephen Hawking). The prognosis for any suffering from this is very poor, and I'm sure we all wish him and his family all the strength in the world to deal with it.

Very poor is somewhat of an understatement. Hawking was a complete anomaly in terms of longevity. 3-5 years is accurate for 90% of those diagnosed with it. It is a horrible disease for everyone concerned - to have your body fail around you, losing the ability to move and communicate, while your mind continues to work as it always did is truly grim. Enjoy life while you can peeps.
