A village weight loss effort has seen its club members lose more than a collective 28 stone in just six weeks.

Fat Lads is made up of regulars at the Lower Buck Inn, Waddington, who have weighed in religiously every Sunday.

They have paid subs each week to take part and also coughed-up fines for non-appearance at weigh-in or per pound gained.

The winner was Richard “Meatball” Harrison, who lost an amazing 33lbs.

More than £400 was raised by the group, which will be donated to various cancer charities.
