Boris leads obesity fight
BORIS Johnson, above, is leading a new fight against obesity in London by backing a guide calling on local authorities to boost healthy eating and tackle takeaways.
The London Mayor has thrown his support behind the Takeaways Toolkit, guidance published by the London Food Board in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

A LIFE-SIZE bronze statue will be unveiled next year of a horse who became a symbol of the struggle against the IRA after surviving the deadly 1982 Hyde Park bomb atrocity.
The sculpture of Sefton, who survived the blast which left seven of his stablemates and four soldiers dead, was commissioned by the Royal Veterinary College.
The college's artist in residence, Camilla Le May, was tasked with sculpting the black gelding two years ago and has spent six months creating the three quarters of a ton sculpture, which shows him walking briskly.
