(London Daily Mail) An obese chef has been told he is too fat to live in New Zealand, even though he has lost 66lb since moving there six years ago.

Albert Buitenhuis, who weighs 20 stone six pounds, was told that it may place demands on the New Zealand health services.

He and his wife Marthie are now facing deportation from their Christchurch home and are living with his sister in Auckland as they fight the decision.

‘We’ve committed no crime and did nothing wrong other than my husband being a foodie.’
