Bruising on Steven Woolfe 'not consistent with fall or seizure'

Bruising on Steven Woolfe 'not consistent with fall or seizure'

UK Independence Party legislator Steven Woolfe has been discharged from a French hospital following an altercation with another senior party member. He was said to be in a serious condition when he was rushed to A&E suffering two "epileptic-like fits".

The UKIP MEP collapsed at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Thursday, the day after putting himself forward as a contender to be the next UKIP leader.

A spokesman for Hookem said in a statement he stood by his version of events and plans to take legal advice.

MEP Patrick O'Flynn declined to discuss the incident, adding: "My thoughts and prayers are with Steven and I'm desperately, anxiously waiting to hear further news".

Woolfe - the front-runner to be the next leader of the right-wing euroskeptic party - suffered seizures and lost consciousness after the clash during a party meeting.

North West England MEP Mr Woolfe, who is recovering in hospital in Strasbourg, sought to extend the "hand of friendship" to Mike Hookem, the other MEP involved in the confrontation in the European Parliament.

Mr Helmer said an internal Ukip investigation into the tussle between the two MEPs would be crucial to Mr Woolfe's future in the party.

"I am now disputing everything Steven Woolfe is saying". Another photograph shows Woolfe being treated by paramedics.

Her rise to the leadership came in the wake of UKIP's former leader Nigel Farage resigning his post in early July and saying he had fulfilled his political ambitions after winning the so-called "Brexit" referendum to leave the EU.

"We know that he fainted after getting out of the hemicycle", said a Parliament official, "and apparently he told the doctor that he had been punched by a colleague an hour before".

Ukip MEP Jonathan Arnott said it was "obvious to anybody" that Mr Woolfe could no longer be a candidate.

The pair clashed in the European Parliament's headquarters in Strasbourg, France.

According to Sky News, one punch was landed on Woolfe, who hit his head on a metal bar.

"I think as a conclusion of that investigation the party will consider whether disciplinary measures are appropriate and that might have implications for Steven Woolfe's candidacy".

Following his collapse, Mr Woolfe had a precautionary scan which revealed there was no blood clot on his brain.
