Tories Face Ruff Treatment in Newark

UKIP might be barking up the wrong tree selecting Roger Helmer in Newark, but it is the Tories who have suffered the first casualty of next month’s by-election. Therese Coffey has been in hospital this afternoon after being bitten by a pugnacious pooch while out canvassing.

She tells Guido the unfortunate incident was the “first time in 25 years of campaigning. It was a little terrier.” It happened while she was “giving it a treat, so it was literally biting the hand that fed it”.

Fortunately she was checked out after minor treatment. Guido sends his best wishes…
