The number of children presenting with symptoms of type 1 diabetes fell by almost a third in lockdown, figures show.
Former Labour MP Tom Watson, who lost eight stone, welcomes a plan to tackle obesity.
The national charity Diabetes UK has made an award to Brian Hough, who raised tens of thousands of pounds in tribute to his wife Lorraine who died from the disease.
Brian, 62, sponsors local sports clubs which raise money for his campaign, collects at local pubs, and raised at least £16,000 from a Just Giving page.
He was made MBE last year for his services to the community and the charity.
Clare Howarth, head of the north of England at Diabetes UK, said: “He is a real community champion and we are lucky to have him."
