An update on our injured colleagues
I blogged yesterday about two councillors in Gateshead who had been injured recently though one I didn't name as I had not received any official confirmation. Councillor Dave Bollands was taken ill last week. I can now report that the second councillor was Gary Haley. By coincidence, both are Labour councillors representing the same ward. And by a futher coincidence, both ended up at the same high dependency ward at the general hospital. Their injuries however were received in completely different circumstances. I understand both are making good progress and I wish both well and a speedy recovery.
