Peer, 93, hurt in escalator fall
A long-serving Labour peer has received emergency treatment after falling on an escalator in Westminster.

Baroness David, 93, was taken by stretcher to an ambulance after the fall at Portcullis House at 1100 GMT.

Nora David, a former frontbench spokeswoman and Cambridgeshire county councillor, was awarded a life peerage in 1978.

She was taken to St Thomas' Hospital. MPs and staff were directed from the escalator to nearby lifts.
