A chronically obese teenager cut free from her home by workmen after she grew too big to go outside remained in hospital yesterday.

Georgia Davis, 19, weighed up to 60st by the time she was urgently rescued from the house that had become her prison.

Neighbours claimed yesterday that the teenager, from Aberdare South Wales, had not been seen outside for up to three years.

Dozens of neighbours watched as Miss Davis was carried out of her home on a specially constructed stretcher on Thursday.

More than 40 police, firefighters, paramedics, social services personnel, council officers and builders worked together to free her.

Miss Davis became a minor celebrity when she took part in an American bootcamp series and slimmed down to a healthier weight. But neighbours said her disappearance from view coincided with a new bout of weight gain around three years ago.
