 Britain's Stay-at-home Mums Are Nation's Biggest Walkers: Study
Britain's stay-at-home mums are the nation's biggest walkers, a new research has found.

In their day-to-day routine, they cover 21.9 miles a week - 1,139 miles a year.

Estate agents are the second-most foot weary at 21 miles a week.

Receptionists are the least, walking 2.5 miles a week, whereas security guards are the second least at five.

Pedometers were fitted to people in different jobs in a study for new health management game 'My Health Coach: Manage Your Weight'.

"Some of us at least are putting in the legwork," The Sun quoted TV health specialist Dr Christian Jessen, as saying.
