Plymouth cabbie sheds 13 stone to save life

A 30-stone (190kg) cabbie lost 13 stone (83kg) in a year after being warned he could die because he was so overweight.

A community weight loss scheme in Plymouth saw Roger Laughton, 46, shed more pounds than the weight of his trainer.

It was not easy - Roger has been hospitalised several times along the way.

Roger's battle to lose weight - Big Fat Cabbies - is on BBC One at 19:30 BST.
