A quick-thinking MP was involved in the dramatic rescue of a woman from the River Thames near the Palace of Westminster tonight.
Liberal Democrat Stephen Gilbert was at an event on the House of Commons terrace, overlooking the river, when he saw what he thought was a body floating past.
But when he saw the body move he reacted quickly to throw a lifebelt into the water, which she was able to grab before being rescued further downstream.
Mr Gilbert said: "What looked like a body just floated past. Then I saw that the person then moved and I followed them down the terrace."
He also admitted the shock had left him "barely able to string a sentence together".
