A size 28 teenager who tipped the scales at more than 21 stone has had a £6,000 gastric bypass on the NHS because she was tormented by school bullies for being ‘fat’. Emma, from Leeds, West Yorkshire, was told she had the health of someone who smokes 100 cigarettes and day, and had the operation at just 16 years old after a two-year hunt to find a surgeon willing to operate.
