The amount of exercise adults take part in every week could drop by a further 35% by the end of the decade if current trends continue, a charity has warned.
Health director for sustainable transport charity Sustrans, Philip Insall warned adults needed to buck the trend in order to avoid health risks like diabetes.

From 1961 to 2005, levels of physical activity in the UK dropped by 20% and if current trends continue, will reduce by more than 35% by 2030.
As a direct result, obesity, diabetes and many more health disorders are becoming increasingly prevalent.
Getting a healthy amount of physical activity doesn't have to mean slogging away in the gym - it can be achieved by building activity into your daily routine by choosing to walk or cycle your everyday journeys.
