A Suffolk MP given leave from parliamentary duties to help him recover from illness is to return to work later.

Bury St Edmunds MP David Ruffley has been receiving specialist medical care since being struck by a train at Victoria Station in London in June.

In a statement the Conservative MP said he was looking forward to serving his constituents again.

During his absence his constituency work was taken over by colleagues.

The MP has represented the seat since 1997.

He returned with a majority of 12,380 on 6 May and is a former opposition whip and shadow police reform minister.
