A beaming Margaret Thatcher returns home from hospital

Monday June 29, 2009

Baroness Thatcher has returned to her London home after two weeks at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where she received treatment for a broken left arm.

Elegant in a salmon-pink ensemble, the former prime minister showed no sign of pain as she smiled and waved to well-wishers on the doorstep of her house.

The 83-year-old - whose left arm was supported in a sling - is feeling "much, much better," her personal secretary has revealed.

Since being admitted to hospital on June 12 after fracturing her upper arm following a fall at her home the former Conservative leader has had a pin inserted to help with the healing process.
