A TOUCH of black comedy recently, outside a Darlington doctor's surgery.

On the pavement, a KFC box, a carton of popcorn, an energy drink can, and crowning glory, a packet of Tunnock's teacakes. All empty.

Was this the Last Supper before the diabetes test in the surgery? We will never know.

Let's hope for a happy ending. It would seem however that diet advice does not go down as well as a Tunnock's teacake.

Next stop, A&E?
