Weight-loss surgery can cut the risk of diabetes and heart attacks as well as keep fat off, a UK study suggests.

It is the largest comprehensive investigation of bariatric surgery – spanning around four years in nearly 8,000 patients.

The health benefits of the surgery are clear and substantial for people who are severely overweight.
