Ipswich: Former world’s fattest man set to sue NHS for his weight gain - claim

IPSWICH: Paul Mason plans to sue the NHS after claiming medics failed to prevent his weight rocketing.

The 50-year-old, who was once the world’s fattest man, weighed around 60 stone at his heaviest.

Mr Mason, from south east Ipswich, underwent life-saving gastric surgery last year.

The procedure was featured in a Channel 4 documentary earlier this week.

But now a national newspaper claims the former postman is set to launch legal action against the NHS who he claims ignored his plight.
