Today, the government has introduced regulations that will mean all large restaurants, cafés and takeaways in England will have to provide calorie labelling before you decide what to order.
In the Midlands, the area with the highest prevalence was Sandwell and West Birmingham where 9.58 per cent of people were diagnosed with diabetes, followed by Leicester City (9.36 per cent), and Walsall (9.33 per cent).
