As the Barnstable Weightwatchers siege enters the 7th day, dieticians are estimating that they are now down to the last 7 packs of weightwatchers boiled sweets.
The unconfirmed combined weight loss total is now set at around 40 stone.
The siege started last Wednesday when a horde of Somali Pilates stormed the early evening meeting in the church hall. Over 60 lardy members are believed to have been present.
Over the last seven days there have been long periods of silence, punctuated by regular aerobic and pilates sessions every two hours. Witnesses have stated that screams of anguish and cries for cream cakes, chocolates, biscuits and Lambrini's have been heard.
