UK NEWS: THE NEW HOUSE OF COMMONS SPEAKER SHOCKED BY HEALTH DIAGNOSIS

House of Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle was diagnosed with diabetes just days before the General Election.

The 62-year-old has lost almost three stone in recent months and was urged to visit doctors by his wife Catherine and other family members.

Sir Lindsay said the symptoms were so severe that doctors wanted him to stay in hospital, but he refused to miss the election campaign.

He is now receiving treatment for what is most likely to be Type 1 diabetes and awaits further tests.
