UK campaign against obesity

5:14 am on 7 May 2012

Television chef Jamie Oliver and England footballer Steven Gerrard are backing a campaign in Britain to fight obesity.

Together with doctors and union leaders, the pair have signed a letter to prime minister David Cameron asking for cookery classes to become compulsory in English schools.

They argue that children as young as four should learn how to prepare a healthy meal.
