DEATHS from obesity in the Lothians will only occur more frequently unless strict measures are taken now, it has been warned.

Scores of people died as a result of their weight across the country last year, and the Liberal Democrats’ health spokeswoman Alison McInnes said the trend would only get worse.

She said: “Obesity is a ticking time bomb.

“Almost 200 deaths last year were recorded as being caused by obesity.”
