James Major in hospital after collapse

James Major, son of former Prime Minister John Major, has been taken to hospital after blacking out.
A spokesman for his father's office said James was with his fiancee, actress Emma Noble, at dinner on Monday night when he collapsed.
He was taken to St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, where he was detained overnight.
The condition cuts of the supply of blood to the brain, causing dizziness and blackouts.
A spokesman said the ailment was not life-threatening although he would be undergoing further tests over the next few days.
James Major was involved in a health scare last December when he suffered from breathlessness.
He was referred to Queen Mary's Hospital, in Sidcup, Kent, where he underwent tests and had his heart monitored.
The results of the tests were not made public.
James, who runs his own business, is set to marry Ms Noble on 29 May.
They plan to hold the reception at the Dorchester Hotel in London, though the actual wedding venue has been kept secret because the families said they want a private event.
The couple met last year when she was working as a model and game show hostess and he was a manager at the Café Royal in London.
He recently announced that he was devoting a lot of time to writing his first novel.
