Britain’s Fattest Man, Carl Thompson Dies At 33 (Photos)


Britain's fattest man, Carl Thompson, dead at 33 and weighed 65 stone

Carl Thompson, 33, had been confined to his home for more than a year, relying on NHS carers to wash and feed him. He previously told how the death of his mother (they are pictured together, inset, when Mr Thompson was a teenager) had turned him to binge eating. Mr Thompson also said he had always had a problem with food and was caught raiding his neighbours’ fridges as a toddler (left).

Police confirmed his death in a statement.  ‘Kent Police was called at 10:38am on 21 June, to a property, Dover following reports that a man in his 30s had died,’ a spokesman said. ‘Officers do not believe the death to be suspicious.’
