Swedish Weight Watchers bring down the house

Floor surrenders to Växjö heavyweights

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A group of around 20 Swedish Weight Watchers participants who'd gathered in the programme's Växjö clinic to "see how much weight they had lost" found out the answer was not enough to prevent the floor from collapsing under their combined bulk.

One shaken heavyweight explained to the Smålandsposten newspaper: “We suddenly heard a huge thud; we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air. The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls."

The Local adds: "Then floor then started to give way in other parts of the room. Shortly thereafter, the smell of sewage began to waft up into the room."

Weight Watchers consultant Therese Levin unsurprisingly concluded: "We're going to have to find replacement premises." ®
