FREE weight-loss groups are being run by Bradford District Care Trust.

Sessions will be staged at 11 venues across the district, including Central Hall in Alice Street, Keighley.

Expert advice will be provided to help people reach and maintain their goals and there will be information about issues such as food groups and portion control.

Anyone aged over 18 can attend.

Catherine Jowitt, practice health champions lead at the care trust, said: "There are lots of benefits to losing weight including increasing your energy, improving mobility, reducing blood pressure and improving mood.

"We'll work with people to help make changes to their lifestyles and behaviour by setting goals and supporting participants to achieve them."

The Keighley group is launched next Thursday (Jan 11), between 1pm and 2.30pm, and will run for 12 weeks.
