Overweight Met Officers Shift The Pounds

Overweight Met Police officers have lost a total of 1.8 tonnes, after joining fat clubs.

Around 450 officers have taken part in the 12 week force-run initiatives, which were set up as a means to reduce the amount of sick days being taken.

And it seems to be working, sickies are down from an average of ten a year per employee to 6.8 a year.
