Unemployed Thomas Knaggs, 32 stands at 6ft 7 inches and takes a size 14 shoe. Here he rants about not being able to buy shoes and clothes to fit him in Hartlepool.
He said: “I just think that in this town there should be more shops for bigger people. They keep saying each generation is getting bigger and taller but they’re not doing anything for clothes or shoe sizes. If I want to find something I have to travel to Middlesbrough to get it and I think we should have it here. I shouldn’t have to travel just to get clothes that fit me.”
