A record number of people are undergoing amputations on the NHS, official figures show, amongst warnings that diabetes will soon afflict one in 10 adults.

Health officials said it was a “tragedy” that so many people were facing life-changing surgery as a result of preventable ill-health.

Current estimates suggest that nearly 5 million adults will suffer from Type Two diabetes by 2035 – a rise from 3.9 million, they said.
