UKIP supporter hurt after Eastleigh town centre fall
11:37am Thursday 21st February 2013 in News
Emergency services were called to the aid of a political canvasser this morning.
She is a long-standing party member who had travelled from West Moors in Dorset to help the party in the run up to the Eastleigh by-election next week.
Police and paramedics were on the scene outside Santander and treated her injury inside the bank.
She is not thought to be in a serious condition.
John Butler, 54, chair of UKIP Poole and Mid Dorset, who was with Eileen at the time, said: "Knowing Eileen she'll be back out here canvassing again in no time. She won't sit still for long.
"Canvassing is a hazardous job. Last week, MEP Stuart Agnew fractured his leg when he slipped on the ice while canvassing for us in Eastleigh."
