A woman claims she's "too overweight" to go to prison.

Linda Jenns killed a jogger after driving through a red light in Ashford, Kent, in January 2014, but despite being found guilty, her lawyer has insisted she can't be sent to jail because she is so large.

Speaking about his 30-stone client, Kent Online reported her lawyer as saying: "As it is she is grossly overweight, morbidly obese and since the incident has put on even more weight.

"She is a person for whom a prison sentence would be extraordinarily difficult and I don't think I exaggerate when I say she might not get through it."
