Hundreds of thousands of people with type 2 diabetes could be offered weight-loss gastric-band surgery on the NHS.

A hospital has launched an appeal to identify a man who cannot remember his own name. The man, who has been named Robert by doctors, was found in a park in Peterborough 50 days ago suffering from a severe case of amnesia.
Nearly two months since he was found there has been no improvement in his condition.
Robert said: "The last few weeks have been truly horrible. I go through so many different emotions. At times I am angry, frustrated, depressed, lost and confused. I just need to find out my name and I hope someone out there will recognise me and help."
