WARRINGTON Borough Council is helping to raise awareness during this week’s ‘Eating disorders awareness week’.

The council’s executive board member for health and wellbeing and adult services, clr Pat Wright said it is important for people to know what health information is available and how they can get support.

She added: “Eating disorders aren’t just faddy eating or diets gone wrong, they’re serious mental health problems.

You can tell it's an election year. Last week WG reported a story about, well everyone in Warrington being overweight, and now she is on here with utter b***s**t trying to solve all our "eating disorders". Also if as she states this is
"She added: “Eating disorders aren’t just faddy eating or diets gone wrong, they’re serious mental health problems".
If this is the case why do the Government not recognise this as a mental health problem? IE will ATOS let me go on the sick with it. NO not a chance! so why say it? You would only get through ATOS in this day and age if you had no legs or arms. You make me sick with your smug smile when clearly you have no clue what is happening to poor and vulnerable constituents that you are supposed to represent. Get in the real world and open your eyes you would be quite shocked!

I'm surprised that comments are even enabled on this lightweight photo op.
When another of the great and good got his fizzog in the frame by opening a KwikFit depot the other week, this pundit was denied the opportunity to point and laugh.
Bah!
