Bolsover MP Dennis Skinner is at home resting after being admitted to hospital.

The 84-year-old firebrand Labour politician has a low red blood cell count.

An ECG was also performed on former miner Mr Skinner, who underwent a double heart bypass operation in 2003, and this was found to be OK.

Mr Skinner - who has represented Bolsover since 1970 - was admitted to hospital on Friday.

Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins tweeted: "Get well soon to my neighbour, colleague and friend Dennis Skinner. Hope you're back terrorising the Tories soon."
