$1 Million Dollar Tab – Caring for the world’s fattest man

The world’s fattest man has told how the break up of a relationship with an older woman spurred him to binge eat his way to 70 stone. But it is the British taxpayer who should be the one feeling heartbroken.

Paul Mason, from Ipswich, was given life-saving bypass surgery last year and now weighs a comparatively slim 37 stone. But his care bill costs taxpayers an estimated £100,000 a year and is believed to have topped £1million over the last 15 years.
