A couple whose combined weight is almost 46 stone have been taken off a council list of foster parents because they suffer from 'morbid obesity', the Daily Telegraph reports (p3).

The paper say the couple, Mr Edwards, 42 who weighs almost 26 stone and his wife whose weight is just over 20 stone have fostered children for South Glamorgan CC for four years.

Now having taken medical advice the council says they are no longer fit to look after children, says the Telegraph.
