MPs told to lose weight by surgeon and peer Ian McColl

MPs have been told to shape up and lose weight, by a surgeon and peer, who described how some tighten their clothes when he approaches them in the corridors of Westminster.

Ian McColl said obesity was the biggest crisis for 90 years, and it was "killing millions, costing billions and the cure is free".

He told Andrew Neil about his bid to get Parliamentarians slimmer, after the pair watched a Daily Politics montage of some MPs getting fit.
