Boris Johnson out of intensive care

BORIS Johnson is now out of intensive care and is in “extremely good spirits”.

The Prime Minister, who has been in hospital since Sunday, has spend three nights in a high-dependency unit at St Thomas’s Hospital in central London after his condition deteriorated.

The announcement came just hours after Foreign secretary Dominic Raab, who has been standing in for him while he was incapacitated, said he was making ‘positive steps forward’ in his treatment.

A No10 spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery.”
