JIM Paice MP has said "it's business as usual" after he broke his leg shifting hay bales on his farm.
The south-east Cambridgeshire MP, pictured, has said a broken fibula will not get in the way of his constituency engagements, which he will fulfil on a pair of crutches.
Mr Paice, 57, thought he had sprained his ankle shifting hay bales on his smallholding last week, but when the pain continued, he visited a hospital close to the House of Commons, where he was told he had a broken fibula.
He will be in plaster and on crutches for six weeks and will be driven around by wife Ava.

"The leg is a bit sore and I'll be on crutches for a while but I'll still be out and about in the constituency thanks to my wife who will be driving me around."
