The woman, who identified herself as Hazel Malcolm from the Bournemouth West constituency party, was taken off the stage waving at the Brighton event after calling for the party to take an emergency motion on the closure of hospitals in Poole.

She began to say she was ‘not feeling too good’ as she collapsed by the podium – prompting gasps from those in the hall.
