A weight-loss expert from Whitley Bay has won an award for his work in helping people lose weight.
Brian Bell, who runs the Monday morning Slimming World group at Battle Hill, has been awarded Pearl status by field manager Linda Middleton.
The accolade is given to consultants who consistently have at least 50 members in their group over several months, providing a good service to help people lose weight.
Brian said: “I am delighted to have received the Pearl award. I absolutely love my job and I think this is a wonderful award to receive.
“Seeing that transformation in people is what I love most about my job.”
