The Member of Parliament for Central St. Catherine, the JLP’s Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, is recuperating in hospital this afternoon.

This after being admitted, reportedly with high blood pressure.

A senior member of the JLP has told our news centre that Ms. Grange is being treated at the Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital of the West Indies.

Ms. Grange, the Opposition Spokesperson for Information, Youth, Culture and Gender Affairs, was reportedly taken to hospital some time between Monday night and early Tuesday morning.

It’s understood that up to last evening, visitors were not being allowed to see her.

When we spoke to Ms. Grange late last night she said she’s been receiving numerous calls from well wishers, including several of her constituents.

She says she’s hopeful of being restored to full health in short order.
