Police survey


In an article of 18 March we referred to a health and fitness survey conducted by the Met police and said that it found 75 per cent of the force to be overweight.  In fact, it found that of those who took part (around a fifth of all officers and staff) 75 per cent of the males surveyed were overweight.
