BRITAIN’S fattest man, Carl Thompson, has died. The 33-year-old had been confined to his home in Dover, Kent, for more than a year, relying on carers to bathe him after being unable to move around on his own due to his 65 stone weight, which is approximately 413 kilogram.

Carl, before his death, had in May 2015, said he began to beat heavily as a means of coping with his grief after he lost his mum in 2012.

He had pleaded for professional help and vowed to shed weight after being told by doctors his ill-health would kill him. Unfortunately, he died on Sunday June 22, 2015 morning.
