'I'm going to die at 22 because I'm overweight'

Doctors and health professionals are calling for a government task-force to be set up to tackle an 'obesity emergency'.

GPs say they are dealing with a generation of patients who may die before their parents, because of a lifestyle made up of junk food and a lack of exercise.
