The leader of Lincolnshire County Council says if children are fat their parents should be told their child is fat.

Councillor Martin Hill made the comments as childhood obesity continues to be a big problem across Lincolnshire.

The councillor says he thinks a spade should be called a spade. And hopes using simple terminology will help tackle the problem.
