A larger than life Cumbrian councillor is less than half the man he used to be after losing 16 and a half stone through diet and surgery.
Tony Markley, mayor of Silloth, features in ITV's Weight Loss Ward programme tonight.
He has dropped from 31 stone to 14 and a half in four years.
Kim Inglis has been to talk to him.
Cumbria's last major structure to be destroyed by the 2009 floods is being re-opened.
Camerton footbridge, which sits over the River Derwent at Great Clifton near Workington, was one of the 253 structures badly damaged across the region.
The re-opening of the 52 metre bridge, costing £500,000, means that Cumbria County Council have reached their three year flood recovery target.
The 'Snow Champions' scheme is being run in addition to the griting routes the council currently maintain, and is part of the new £4.1 million winter maintenance programme.
Jayne Varty from Pategill in Penrtih, is the vice chair of the Pategill Tenants Association and is the first person to sign up to the scheme.
Volunteers will be provided with high visibility vest, warm gloves, snow shovels and a supply of salt.
