Fatter bills for hefty hotel guests

`A German hotel has started calculating fees according to the weight of the guest.

The three-star Ostfriesland hotel in the north German town of Norden charges the equivalent of 34p per kilogram.

So a thin man weighing 60 kilos pays just over 20 a night, but a man weighing 100 kilos would be forced to shell out nearly 35.

Owner Juergen Heckroth said: “Slim guests live longer and can therefore come more often and that is why we reward them.”‘
