Stephen Gilbert MP (Lib Dem, St Austell and Newquay), poses with the parliamentary lifebelt he used to rescue a woman from the Thames.
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".
The Metropolitan Police had said they pulled a woman from the water after MP Stephen Gilbert claimed he rescued her:
"At 1950 the marine policing unit responded to reports of a woman in the River Thames near Westminster Bridge. They recovered her from the water and took her to hospital. Next of kin have been informed," the force said in a statement.
