STEPHEN WOOLFE SUFFERS SEVERE BRAIN INJURY AFTER BEING PUNCHED AT PARTY MEETING VOILENCE





STEPHEN WOOLFE
Ukip leadership favourite Steven Woolfe has said he is 'feeling brighter' after collapsing and being rushed to hospital following a punch-up with a fellow MEP.
Mr Woolfe dramatically collapsed on a walkway in the European Parliament building in Strasbourg at around 11.20 UK time shortly after the fight with another Ukip politician - alleged to be Mike Hookem - at a 'clear the air' meeting.
The married father-of-one - who was marking his 49th birthday today - suffered serious head injuries and is being treated for bleeding on the brain.
Sources claimed the row was over Mr Woolfe's admission that he had considered defecting to the Tories after being 'enthused' by Theresa May's new direction.
But Mr Woolfe said in a statement from hospital this afternoon: 'The CT scan has shown that there is no blood clot in the brain.
'At the moment I am feeling brighter, happier, and smiling as ever.
Images published by ITV News this afternoon appear to show Mr Woolfe sprawled unconscious on the floor two hours later while someone tries to help him.  
Interim leader Nigel Farage, an ally of Mr Woolfe, said in a statement: 'I deeply regret that following an altercation that took place at a meeting of Ukip MEPs this morning that Steven Woolfe subsequently collapsed and was taken to hospital. His condition is serious.'
