Football league for overweight men launched

A football league exclusively for obese men has been launched in Somerset.

Thirty players with a body mass index of 30 or more have signed up for the Man vs Fat football programme.

The free 14-week football league is decided on points won, as well as pounds lost.

Funded by Somerset County Council, Bridgwater is the second place in the country to have commissioned the scheme.
