Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has been discharged from hospital after breaking her arm in a fall.

A spokeswoman for the former Tory PM said: "She tripped over at home and has broken a bone in her upper arm. She was taken to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, but she has been discharged and is on the way home now."

Lady Thatcher, 83, was taken to hospital by ambulance, but is now said to be "recovering well".

She has suffered a number of heath scares over recent years, including minor strokes.

In March last year, Lady Thatcher spent the night in hospital after feeling unwell while having dinner with friends.

However, earlier this week she was at the Carlton Club in London to mark the 30th anniversary of her historic election victory.
