Tory MP says sorry to hospital after Cameron's false claims...

David Cameron's 'fightback' has floundered in its first day. A Tory MP has admitted that the Conservative Leader was wrong yesterday to claim that maternity services at his local district hospital were under threat.

Norfolk North West MP Henry Bellingham has confirmed that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn is not facing cuts as claimed yesterday by David Cameron.

Mr Bellingham has apologised to hospital workers for his Leader's remarks and said he wasn't even consulted by Cameron's staff before they were made.

Mr Cameron has yet to apologise for his gaffe.

Only last week, fellow Norfolk MP Norman Lamb was forced to apologise to his local hospital - the Norwich and Norfolk - after claims he made about kitchen hygiene were proved not to be true.
