Former PM Thatcher in hospital

Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher was admitted to hospital last night to be treated for an infection. She is thought not to have fully recovered from an illness which prevented her attending a reception at Downing Street to mark her 85th birthday last week. At the time the reason for her lack of attendance was given as a bout of the flu. Lady Thatcher was taken to Cromwell hospital in West London in what was described as a routine admission.
