Supersize me, God

Britain’s obesity crisis is so serious that hospitals are buying specialist equipment to keep bodies cool because they are too large to fit into mortuary fridges. 
Hospitals are also having to widen corridors, buy reinforced beds and lifting equipment in order to cope with the growing numbers of obese patients coming though their doors. 
Figures obtained by the Daily Telegraph show that hospitals have spent at least £5.5 million over the past three years to adapt allow them to treat larger patients. 
Experts now warn the cost of treating overweight and obese patients could rise to at least £10 million a year as the nation's waistlines continue expanding.
