Thatcher better and leaving hospital

By politics.co.uk staff

Margaret Thatcher is feeling “much better” and will be returning home from hospital during the weekend, it has been confirmed.

Her daughter, Carol, is expected to visit her in the next few hours.

The former prime minister was taken to hospital after fracturing her arm in a fall.

But she was kept longer than expected, leading to concerns about the 84-year-old’s health.
