Six young brothers and sisters face being taken from their parents and put into care because they are overweight.Needless-to-say, I'm talking about the social workers, not the parents.
Social workers have warned they will intervene if three of the youngsters – including a 12-year-old boy who weighs 16 stone – do not shed several pounds in three months.
