Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell has been struck down by Covid.

She said: “After all this time, travelling up and down to London, working in Westminster and being wholly engaged in the life of our town, I was laid low myself by Covid last week and have been subsequently bound by the requirement to self-isolate for 10 days. 

I’m now on the mend – helped by my double jabs – but this meant I could not vote on the Covid restrictions brought in to combat the new Omicron variant that has worried the experts and the Government.  It is doubling every two days.”
