Dr Simon Kelly, from the Priory Hospital in Southampton, said that he last saw Margaret Moran on Tuesday. He outlined the mental health problems the disgraced former MP is facing:
She remains very distressed, very agitated, she is severely ill. She is unable really to process information that is presented to her. What she seeks today is to recover from her illness and continue to engage in treatment.
She's living a restricted lifestyle, she's not answered the telephone at home for approximately three years, she goes out very occasionally, to a local supermarket for 30 minutes. She recently acquired a terrier cross dog, two years ago, and tends to walk him as well.
